    1. They know how it happens already. Albinism is a congenital disorder, that causes a partial or complete absence of pigmentation in the skin, eyes, and hair.

    1. Wood Turtle are endangered and protected. They are found in the eastern US. One named, Franklin, lives at Fountain Rock Nature Center in Walkersville, MD. Franklin does not have albinism.

    1. Close. Wood Turtles are semi-aquatic. They prefer to stay close to water and spend hours lounging and napping in the water 💕

  18. This is truly amazing and beautiful. I hope it is taken care of by someone who is interested in the turtle and has the turtles best care in mind.

  19. Why is it that we gawk and go gaga over the unusual? There's nothing wrong with the ordinary. It's like being obsessed with effing princesses. Nothing "special" about them, just genetics in this case. Albinism is generally a flaw that makes life tough.

  21. I would love to see the ugly comments deleted, we are admiring unusuality, NOT turtle soup 😡

  23. It's beauty that counts inside and out, I too hope that turtle makes a good Life finds a partner and has baby turtles... But that doesn't necessarily mean it will happen. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, I have seen some albino people I do not find them Freakish, Just different.

  24. Hopefully he'll have a good and healthy long life protected by his piers.

  25. It is leucistic as in having color pigment deficiency. Albinos have no color pigments.

  26. Absolutely mesmerizing and fantastic! I truly thought I knew what beautiful looked like. Realized I didn't until I saw this guy!

  27. We as people are attracted and amused by the oddly unique and visibly different. The fact is, Albinism is strangely becoming more and more commonplace in virtually all forms of life across the planet. This is a weak link by any standard and should not be sought to replicate as it will eventually lead to the demise of any given species. The phrase "THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH" is happening before our very eyes. We are embracing it rather than trying to curb it.
