Odd Crocodilian of Florida. Physical description: Pink color. Distribution: Everglades, Florida. Significant sighting: Tour guide Danny Decker twice encountered a pink alligator in a canal near Andytown, Florida, in early March 1976. Possible explanations:
(1) Albinistic (pink-eyed) or leucistic (dark-eyed) Alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) are white but could appear pink under certain lighting conditions.
(2) The Spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus) has been introduced and is thriving in Dade County, Florida. Hatchlings are yellowish but turn darker in adulthood.
