It’s possible that what you saw was an albino alligator — an alligator with little or no skin pigment because it lacks the ability to produce melanin. This type of alligator is very rare, with only an estimated population of 50 in the US. They are nearly impossible to find in the wild, since they would be susceptible to sun damage and visible to predators, so if you did indeed see it in the wild, you were very lucky!
On the other hand, it may have been a younger alligator, whose skin pigment hasn’t yet developed into the dark color of an adult.
