Rare Albino Turtles Look Like Little Fiery Dragons

We’ve had the chance to see a lot of animals with albinism, like whales, penguins, giraffes, tigers, but never have we ever stumbled upon an albino turtle.

The rare characteristics of an albino turtle make her an incredible sight to behold. With their red eyes and orange-tinged skin and shell, it brings a unique feature to the animal world. On the other hand, this has its own disadvantage.

Without their natural colors, they’re incredibly vulnerable since they can’t camouflage as easily as with the greenish colors on top of them. This makes them easy prey for predators, causing a shorter lifespan and rarity of their kind.

Despite this genetic disadvantage, they still do live longer than other animals due to their strong shell, but still not as long as a normal turtle would.

Albinism in turtles, or reptiles in general, it’s a little bit different than in humans or other animals that appear all colorless. They have one pigment present and that’s why they appear red or yellow instead of white. Probably the word that would suit better their condition would be melanistic since melanin is the pigment they lack.

No matter their condition, albino turtles are rare and so beautiful. If you’ve never seen one, you can scroll down below for some adorable pictures.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
