Rare White Alligators Return To Newport Aquarium

Posted Wednesday, July 16th 2014 @ 12pm

(Newport))--Two rare white Alligators are coming back to Newport Aquarium. The pair were a part of a rain forest exhibit in 2013 but were moved off site in February.

Snowball and Snowflake are back to stay at the Newport Aquarium's Gator Alley. They will be neighbors with Mighty Mike, the largest American Alligator outside the state of Florida.

Snowball and Snowflake are just 2 of 100 albino American Alligators in the world. White alligators struggle to survive because of their inability to hide and sensitivity to the sun's UV rays.
