Photos of newly hatched albino alligators in Osceola County
Wild Florida Airboats in Kenansville, Florida, announced Tuesday the hatching of two baby albino alligators, which the park says are the first ever successfully bred at an attraction.
The Osceola County park shared photos and video of the event, and we've gathered the cutest, and most unsettling, images here.
In June, Wild Florida announced a new batch of 26 albino alligator eggs, which began an 81-day wait. The parent albino alligators, Snowflake and Blizzard, are now proud parents to 4 hatchlings in total. Age 26 and 15, the female and male are included in the images here.
"This is the most incredible thing we have ever done!" said Wild Florida co-owner and co-founder Sam Haught. "Helping create more excitement, interest and casting a bigger spotlight on all crocodilians is just one of the many pieces that speaks to our mission here at Wild Florida. These albino babies will definitely inspire our guests. Our team can’t wait to share these little miracles with everyone!"
The two gators were acquired by the park in 2017, and their hatchlings will be on display at a later date. The park charges guests $10 per visit.
