Albino alligator gets acupuncture

“Bino,”¬†Brazil‘s six-year-old albino alligator, has started to do acupuncture weekly for an over-curvature of his spine,according to the International Business Times.

The alligator, one of two albinos born in a large litter, has been under the care of the Sao Palo aquarium since 2007. The acupuncture therapy is reportedly helping his condition (according to Reuters, he has scoliosis and kyphosis).
