BUSHNELL, Fla. (AP) — A rare white alligator named Snowball was apparently stolen from a north Florida reptile farm owned by the “Swamp Brothers.”

43 gators & crocodiles killed in building arson, another rare gator stolen

Sumter County Sheriff’s officials said in a news release that Snowball has been missing since a fire broke out at Animal Crossings of Florida Inc. on Friday, killing 43 alligators and crocodiles . The farm is owned by Robbie and Stephen Keszey, who starred in the show on the Discovery Channel.

Sheriff’s Capt. Pat Breeden tells the Ocala Star-Banner that the dead reptiles were mostly babies. Detectives said someone broke a window to get into the building and then set a fire. The state fire marshal’s office is investigating.

The brothers are asking through social media for the public’s help in finding Snowball, a leucistic alligator, born without skin pigmentation.
