I have heard all of my days that in life, we will meet two main types of people — the givers and the takers. It is a fairly simple truth.

Since his arrival in 1992, Blanco, the Houston Zoo’s leucistic (white) alligator has been a favorite of both guests and staff, and has been the centerpiece attraction in the Reptile and Amphibian House.
