“This is our third year in a row of babies and Wild Florida remains the only park on the planet that has successfully bred albino alligators,” Wild Florida co-owner Sam Haught said in a statement.
Leaders said the hatchling is very healthy and will stay in protective care for a few weeks before being introduced to an exhibit.
Guests can see some of the other baby albino alligators and their superstar parents on display in areas of the park.
