Rare white sea turtle found on South Carolina beach

Kiawah Island, October 20

Volunteers checking sea turtle nests on a South Carolina seaside came across a uncommon sight: a white sea turtle hatchling crawling throughout the sand.

The city of Kiawah Island posted on its Fb web page that the Kiawah Island Turtle Patrol discovered a lone white child sea turtle on Sunday. Images present a tiny turtle that is a creamy white color quite than the extra typical grey or inexperienced of a sea turtle.

The city says the hatchling is believed to have a genetic situation referred to as leucism, which causes animals to have lowered pigmentation.

The situation is described as extraordinarily uncommon, but it surely’s unclear precisely how typically such turtles are discovered within the wild.

The Olive Ridley Undertaking, a sea turtle conservation group, says sea turtles with leucism sometimes have a tough time surviving due to a scarcity of camouflage. AP
