    Default Meet Whitey the albino alligator

    He's all white, extremely bright and gets uptight if he misses his mealtimes.


    Otherwise Whitey the albino alligator is just your common-or-garden loveable flesh-eating reptile (if you believe his handler). Scroll down for more ...

    'Smart critter': Whitie the albino alligator, who only gets cranky when he misses a meal

    Whitie and his handler, Rene Renz


    "Whitie is the smartest critter in the place," says Rene Renz, owner of the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen in Germany.

    "He's clever, kind and I don't mind hugging him any time - except when he's hungry. He tends to get a bit snappy if he misses a meal."

    The 16 stone, five-year-old gator is on loan from a zoo in Florida.
    He was found in the swamps of Lousiana as a baby. A good job too - the lack of skin pigmentation meant that Whitey would not have survived in the wild.
    Not because he doesn't have all the innate skills to capture prey: but his unique colour, or lack thereof, would have marked him out as an instant snack for bigger alligators.
    He is one of only ten albino alligators and crocodiles in the world - and the only one currently in Europe. After his German gig ends at the beginning of May he will be touring other animal parks in Europe for the rest of the year.
    Tasty snack: Whitie's distinctive colouring would have made him an instant target for other alligators had he been left in the wild

    I saw 2 of these in Myrtle Beach. They don't look real, sort of like those white hollow bunnies you get at Easter. They were in a darker cave area to protect them from the light.

    I'm very fascinated by reptiles, I like to gross myself out by looking at them.


    Put some sunscreen on this guy! SPF 99.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Obviously they let a small child (or someone with the mentality of one) name the poor gator. They could have at least called it 'Honky.'
