Orange gators are turning heads in South Carolina. Is it a rare breed or something more simple?

(BLUFFTON, S.C.) - - A couple of alligators are turning heads in the Lowcountry.

There are two gators in the pond at the Cypress Ridge community in Bluffton, and there's a fairly reasonable explanation for their color.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says the gator's orange hue has likely come from hibernating in water that contains rust.

Officials say that eventually, the gators will turn back into their original color.
