BUSHNELL, Fla. (AP) — Robbie Keszey of the ‘”Swamp Brothers” TV show is asking for help finding a rare white alligator named Snowball that was stolen from a Sumter County reptile farm owned by the “Swamp Brothers.”

Keszey has posted several photos on social media asking people to share them with the hope of finding the beloved leucistic alligator, which was born without skin pigmentation.

Sumter County Sheriff’s officials said 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.
