We've got a soft spot for albino alligators. We're not alone: Everyone in the Bay Area is half in love with Claude, the iconic superstar at the science museum. He's just so ... weird and elegant and 181 pounds. At Claude the Albino Alligator's 15th Birthday, the focus is on kids who share Claude's birthday -- they will be invited to help sing Happy Birthday, and to decorate the gator-chow "cakes" he'll be ferociously devouring. Human-chow cake is on hand as well, in addition to alligator crafts and the chance to ogle Claude in all his glory.
