Rare yellow turtle found in India


A farmer in Odisha, India found a rare yellow turtle while working the fields, brought it home and then handed it over to forest officials.

It’s an Indian flapshell turtle that they believe to be albino.

This type of turtle is most commonly found in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

But an albino turtle of this kind is extremely rare.

It has never been seen before in Odisha and only seen once before in all of India.

Authorities released the turtle in a waterbody in the Indian city of Balasore.
