KENANSVILLE, Fla. — A pair of albino alligators at a Florida wildlife park are expecting bundles of joy.

Snowflake and her mate Blizzard, who live at Wild Florida in Kenansville, produced 19 eggs.

Our ABC affiliate in Jacksonville reports that the park staff are incubating the eggs, and on Wednesday the park released a Facebook video showing the eggs are displaying signs of being fertile.

The park website said it got the alligator pair in May 2017, and the gators are the first albino breeding pair in Central Florida. Blizzard is 12 years old, and Snowflake is 23 years old.
