I have never seen an orange alligator! Check this guy out! Locals in North Carolina have dubbed him “Donny,” not sure why (Donald Trump).
Andrews of Little River was quick to take these photos of the unusual reptile while visiting his father-in-law in Calabash Lakes Home Community. Donny has a cousin apparently as another orange alligator was spotted earlier this month in Hanahan, S.C.
Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources said in a USA Today report that the color may come from where the animal spent the winter, such as a rusty steel pipe. Wow, note to self!
Both orange colored alligators are expected to shed their skin and change to their normal shade of green. Hey these guys just wanted to get in on the radical hair colors that are all the rage with the kids! ~grace
