Rare Albino Turtle That Looks Like Made Out of Fresh Melted Cheese Has Gone Viral

Here we got a different friend. An albino flapshell turtle and this one is very rare kind. Look at his shiny bright yellow shell. Beautiful.

This guy popped up in West Bengal, India. Actually he was rescued by a Sujanpur village farmer when he found the turtle while he walking on his field. He then handed the turtle over to the forest officials once after he brought it home. Forest officials then contacted expert to learn more about the turtle. What else you suppose to do when you find something like that anyway.

Association for Biodiversity Conservation executive director, Siddhartha Pati had said to the media that experts says it is an extremely rare albino turtle with estimated age of about two years. Furthermore, he says this is the second time they found an albino turtle in India. There has been another albino turtle found in Sindh few years ago.

For those science facts lovers in among our readers, Siddhartha Pati explain about albinism like this, “It is a congenital disorder and it is characterized by complete or partial absence of tyrosine pigment. Also, sometimes a mutation takes place in the gene sequence or there is a deficiency of tyrosine.” Okay, he didn’t say that particularly for you. He said it to the media and we just quote it here for you. Because, well, you matter. For us.

After shared on twitter, this little turtle took over the internet really quick. Then people started comparing the turtle to cheese and we have to admit, we cannot argue with their point.

Mostly south Asian countries get to see these flapshell turtles as they appear in countries like Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. For this guy by the way, he is escorted back to the wild safely by Indian authorities.

You know, there is a big chance that your friends and family haven’t seen something like this in their whole life. So here is a chance for you to be the smart one in the room. Take our word on it and share this with them to see. (wink)
