Precious Pearl Makes All The White Moves Battling Odds In Wild

The crown jewel of the Adelaide River may well be albino saltwater crocodile Pearl, named for her colour and standing as a gem. One of the few white salties in the world, Pearl has survived the odds to become one of the favourite crocs — for tourists at least — in the NT. A lack of melanin gives Pearl her white coat, robbing her of natural camouflage, which greatly reduced her odds as a baby crocodile.
