San Francisco’s California Academy of Sciences is celebrating a momentous occasion. The museum’s albino alligator, Claude, is turning 15 on Sept. 15 — a golden birthday, eh? — but the merriment runs for an entire week, from now through next Wednesday. That means gator-themed craft activities all week, and a party on the 15th at 9:30 a.m., complete with a “Happy Birthday” sing-along and fish-shaped “cupcakes” made from protein pellets and decorated, with children’s help, with fruit and flowers.
