After years of failed attempts to produce offspring by albino alligator parents Blizzard and Snowflake, Wild Florida was blessed with a snowstorm of albino baby gators in 2020. From a clutch of 26 eggs, Yeti has become a superstar along with his three siblings. They are the World’s Only albino gators hatched at a facility open to the public. Wild Florida’s mission is to help people make a connection with animals. We hope Yeti makes you say WOW and encourages a new level of interest in these beautiful animals. Yeti shines a different light on alligators and other crocodilians by inspiring people to see them as more than monstrous eating machines to be feared by all.
By sharing Yeti with the world, Wild Florida aims to convert our fear of alligators into awe, respect, and adoration for one of nature’s most incredible animals. When people become more familiar with alligators, it increases their awareness and desire to help their conservation. We agree with naturalist Baba Dioum who said, “In the end, we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we have been taught.”
