Caldwell Zoo Gets Rare Visitor

It's a first for the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler. Meet Antoine Blanc, a rare white alligator and the zoo's newest member.

He's on loan from a New Orleans Zoo and will be staying with us through June. Zoo workers say white alligators are very sensitive to light so they have to stay indoors in a temperature controlled room.

Antoine is 8 feet long and weighs 250 pounds.
