More info: The St. Augustine Alligator Farm has been running for more than a century and is now the only facility in the world exhibiting living specimens of all 24 currently recognized species of crocodilian. One of the residents is the rare and mystical Albino Alligator from the Louisiana bayou whose legend says that those who gaze upon these beautiful reptiles will receive good fortune.
Alligators and crocodiles are closely related, and people often confuse one with the other; however, these two reptiles are very different. An alligator is distinguished by its wide, rounded snout and black colour. Also, all of its upper teeth can still be seen when its mouth is closed. Crocodiles, on the other hand, have narrow, pointed snouts, a grey-green colour and only the fourth tooth on the lower jaw can be seen when the animal's mouth is closed.
