What is an albino crocodile?

A Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) has grey scales and green or hazel eyes. An albino Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) is a yellow-white crocodile with pink or pink-brown eyes.

All albino animals are without pigmentation (colour) and have pink or pink-brown eyes.

An albino animal is not a different species of the same animal. Albinism is a lack of pigmentation.
