These little creatures are really beautiful:

At just a foot long, these white gators are two of the rarest creatures in the world.
They were found in swamp land by a Louisiana fisherman and have now been given a new home in a New Orleans Zoo.
Weighing in at just over 14 pounds, the creatures are not albino, but are born with a genetic condition known as leucism, which means they have a reduction in all types of skin pigment.











There's a video of them on this site - so cute:

Here is what they will look like when they grow up:

With his piercing blue eyes and pale skin this rare alligator stands out like a sore thumb.
Weighing over 500 pounds, Bouya Blan is one of only 12 white alligators in the world.
The 22-year-old, whose name means white fog, lives along with three other giant leucistic alligators at the world famous Gatorland theme park in Florida.
'People are awestruck when they see them, and just one look into those icy, blue eyes will give you chills,' says Mark McHugh, President & CEO of Gatorland.



Not so cute now:

Oh man, Berenike. These are some adorable 'gators. I want to put a tiny orchid behind it's ear, and bring it home.


Seriously, what a cuteness.

They all look like they're posing for every picture and giving a nice, toothy grin. Weird.

That big one is definitely Fox News material. I wonder when they're gonna sign it onto a contract. At least Bill O'Reilly might think twice about trying to beat it up.

Anyhew, you're saying you did that "mistake" deliberately? Crazy manipulative you are!
