Mississippi River Gallery

Mississippi River Gallery

Set above the Mississippi River, this gallery offers views of the real Mississippi River and highlights many of the river's inhabitants. The freshwater gallery features catfish, sturgeon, paddlefish and alligator.

This exhibit is now home to a new white alligator. This striking fellow was found in Louisiana and the Aquarium is thrilled to care for this rare animal. Though many may think he is albino, he is really luecistic—a gene mutation that gives him his white color.
