... in my belly!

This is an albino alligator. The Cape May County Zoo couldn't decide whether there are 30 or 50 of them in the world, but there aren't a lot since they don't have any ability to camouflage themselves.

I was snapping away happily as this guy floated perfectly still on the other side of his tank. I stopped to scroll through my pictures to make sure the exposure was okay. When I looked up, the alligator was right next to me, grinning in a way that said, "If there weren't glass between us, this would have been a happy ending for me."

Lessons learned:
1. Alligators don't need camouflage when they are this sneaky.
2. I would survive approximately 0.3 days in the wild.

This one was only visiting. I was sad to see him go. :(

I think all alligators should have some kind of title. King is a good start. :XD:

Aligators rock :) And they are sneaky indeed. I saw an albino one once in a zoo, and i turned around to see the turtles (which were across from it) and when i went to look at it again it was right next to me!!
