Mississippi River Gallery

Mississippi River Gallery

Set above the Mississippi River, this gallery offers views of the real Mississippi River as well as highlights many of the rivers inhabitants. The freshwater gallery features catfish, sturgeon, paddlefish and Spots, the white alligator. Though many think Spots is albino, he is really luecistic—a gene mutation that gives him his white color and blue eyes.
