Survival of the Fittest
Just like humans, animals and reptiles can be albinos. You can tell that this alligator is an albino because of it's white skin and pink eyes.
Alligators can also have a rare condition called leucism (loo-SIS-em) which gives them white skin too. The difference between the two is the eye color.
When an alligator has leucism it does not loose the pigment in its eyes.
Unfortunately, in both cases, the alligators have short life spans.
They stand out to predators and they don't have the luxury of putting on sunscreen like we do.
