Heh...not quite. There are a few albino allies out there...really stunning beasts. At his size, I would guess at about 2-4 years, but there are a lot of factors that affect growth, and I am not at the moment certain where they obtained him, but I am sure I can find records and therefore an age.

Albino alligators are rare, obviously (As with most albino things).

They also dont live near as long. In the wild they are killed or die very quickly because of their "albinoness". Other gators kill them because they look differant, and since it is albino its harder for it to live in the wild (More fragile).

They live longer in zoos and such, but they still dont live as long as other gators in zoos either.

Looks a bit like an Agkistrodon piscavorus ssp., actually...very closely related to the copperhead (Agkistrodon contortix ssp.) and the colour/patter can vary greatly depending on locale...somebody with sloppy labelling, no doubt...or they moved some snakes around temporarily and neglected to post it. No, wait, the eyes look wrong...let me do a bit of head scalation comaprisons, and I will get back to you....US snakes are not my forte....I am a Boid boy.

Actually, a number of venomous snakes do have round pupils.

I agree. You certainly don't want to use that as an indication of if it's venomous or not. 8O
