If the alligator correctly executes the movements they have been trained to do, they receive a reward of food. The white coloring of the gator is a result of leucism, a genetic abnormality similar to albinism.

Audubon Nature Institute is thanking its neighbors in Jefferson Parish by offering discounted admissions on Saturday, December 12, 2020.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Parish, Jefferson Parish residents and government employees (regardless of residency) can visit Audubon Zoo and Audubon Aquarium of the Americas for half the regular ticket price (adult or child) on December 12.
"Our neighbors in Jefferson Parish are a huge part of the Audubon family," said Audubon Nature Institute President and CEO Ron Forman. "Jefferson Parish Appreciation Day is a way for us to thank those residents for their continued support of our attractions year in and year out."
