Very rare ghostly white alligators are on display at Gatorland Orlando. Do not mistake these white alligators for the more common pink-eyed albino alligators. These, called leucistic alligators, have steel blue eyes and it is believed that only a dozen of the 5 million alligators in the US are born and live this way. Their pigments are actually a result of a genetic defect but it is said that those who can make eye contact with leucistic alligators can expect good fortune.
