Ghostly Gator Greets Guests at NC Aquarium

Was it Essau in The Bible who was albino? And what about Johnny Winter of rock and roll fame? (he also played a show in Carolina Beach last year). I think there’s a Chinese model who’s hair is pearly white.

Now, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher is getting in on the no-hue action, recently introducing an as-yet-to-be-named all-white alligator. The 5-foot specimen features a typically topographical backside, teeth sharper than a puppies, and freaky pink eyes -- a rarity indeed.

The Aquarium is having a contest to name its newest reptile. Please visit online at during the months of April and May. The winner will be announced in June.

The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher is located just south of Kure Beach, near the mouth of the Cape Fear River, on U.S. 421. The site is less than a mile from the Fort Fisher ferry terminal. Hours are 9am to 5pm daily (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day). Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $6 for ages 6 through 17. Free admission for children under 6, registered groups of N.C. school children, and NC Aquarium Society members.
