Houston Zoo announced its white American alligator Blanco will soon be moving to a plush retirement community, according to chron.com.
Blanco is 11 feet long and weighs in at 180 pounds and is headed for a reptile show called "Crocodile Encounter" in Angleton, Texas.

Blanco (Spanish for "white") gets his name from his pale exterior, the result of a condition called leucism, in which the eyes retain their pigment (Blanco's are blue) but areas such as skin experience a loss of pigmentation. Thus he's not an albino, though he's probably often referred to as one.
The 2013 video below, from Houston Zoo, shows Blanco receiving some training and some treats for said training. Today Blanco is 30, but his species can live up to around age 50, so he'll have some time to enjoy his golden years.
