Forest officials in eastern India recently found an extraordinarily rare specimen: a turtle that is completely yellow. They caught the one-of-a-kind reptile after some locals spotted its unusual coloration near the city of Balasore. It’s suspected that the yellow turtle is an albino mutation of a common turtle. One official told Indian TV, “Truly it is very rare. I have not seen such a turtle in my life ever."
