KURE BEACH, NC (WECT) – Luna, the albino alligator at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, now has roommates. She's moved in with two females and one male alligator, sharing a large swimming area and lounging space.

"Luna's transition to her new space has gone well," said Aquarium Curator Hap Fatzinger. "All the animals are currently adapting."

The space that formerly housed Luna, will undergo significant renovations in anticipation of a new bald eagle habitat.
