Orange Alligator Pictures?

A woman snapped a picture of an orange alligator while the animal was sunning beside a neighborhood canal in Venice, South Florida.

The color is very strange, some claim the orange alligator is a variation of an albino.

Itís one of the weirdest animals I've ever seen, I never imagined alligators were born with such a bright color.

Is the alligator's color real or has the alligator been painted orange? Are there pictures of the orange alligator found in Florida?

Experts with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have scrutinized the picture and say the orange color is not genetic.

If you look at the photo closely, you'll notice its teeth are orange too, the color is definitely not natural.

Not sure yet how this alligator came to rusty orange, but its genes had nothing to do with it.

Scientist from Florida say they believe the color comes from paint, stain, iron oxide or some other element in the environment that has left a coating on the alligator, making it appear orange.

These are the picture of the orange alligator taken by the Florida woman.
