Meet Blizzard the world’s first Piebald Alligator, and Snowball, an extremely rare Leucistic alligator. Both alligators are living at Animal Crossings of Florida, Inc. in Buschnell, Florida. You can check out their Facebook HERE.
“Blizzard and Snowball are American Alligators with extremely rare genetic mutations. Leucism, or the partial loss of pigmentation, results in an animal with primarily white skin and, with reptiles, eyes that are almost always blue. Piebaldism refers to having multicolored skin and, typically, normally pigmented eyes. Leucistic animals tend to be confused as being albino – a rare mutation, but leucism, by comparison, is extraordinarily rare and piebaldism in an alligator is believed to have never before been documented.
