Rare albino alligator looks like it's made of clay


In news that may horrify or delight you, this alligator is not made of clay. She is real.

Pearl, a 10-year-old, 105-pound albino gator, has quickly become the star of Florida park Gatorland for her unpigmented skin and startling pinkish-white eyes.

Ah, yes. What a beauty she is.

And they sure are a hit with parkgoers.

Just to clarify one more time: this is a real alligator. Not fake.
