White Critters


Mom saw some interesting
critters on FB the other day
and I decided to share.

The first is a white
Mom showed us pics
of regular gators,
they have a lot of teeth.

Although these white gators
look like the regular gators
they are just white. 

As if these large iconic reptiles weren’t impressive enough,
 the rare leucistic white alligators, are even more
 breathtaking. They’ve been described as ethereal,
 ghostly and, most frequently, beautiful. They have
 translucent white skin and deep blue eyes with a hint
 of pigmentation splashed here and there. Leucism 
is a rare condition not to be confused with albinism,
 which results in pink eyes and no pigmentation at all. 
The incidence of leucistic gators is probably very rare, 
although it is hard to say for certain since leucistic 
young lack protective camouflage coloring
 and are easy pickings for predators.

White Kangaroos

White kangaroos are extremely rare
 but have been s potted in the country
 before. The phenomenon is usually caused
 by albinism or leucism. Albinism refers to the 
complete lack of melanin production in an 
animal. This affects the eyes, skin and hair,
 and often means they are all lighter in color. 

There are a lot of rare
white animals around
the world.

Love that pocket
on the kangaroo!
