Looks painted to me...and for the record, albino 'gators look nothing like that, so deffinitely not a paradox. I call it a hoax.

I think it was bill love that suggested dried mud. Cant remember off hand. However it will be interesting to see the story progress if the animal is caught.

Cant be dried mud if its surrounded by water as it appears in the photo...and a lake/pond with such a high iron-content (the orange coloration) clay base would certainly discolor the water as well. I've seen plenty of time people paint turtle and release them back and this looks just the same, to me. Curious to see who will catch it first!
