A video showed a rare, yellow turtle discovered in India in July 2020.

Surprising locals in the Balasore district of India’s Odisha, a rare yellow-coloured turtle was found and handed over to forest department officials on Monday.

Sharing a video of the turtle, Indian Forest Services official Susanta Nanda said on Twitter it’s most probably an albino. The creature could be seen floating in a container while its unique yellow colour stood out in the water.

While a few netizens remarked that they had never seen a yellow-coloured turtle like this before, others called it a “Ninja turtle”.

The coastal state of Odisha frequently witnesses such rare and different species. In June, a rare trionychidae or softshell turtle was captured by fishermen in the state’s Mayurbhanj district and later handed over to forest officials.
