The forest official also said the turtle is unique and rare and wasn't seen in the area before.

A rare yellow-coloured turtle was spotted by locals in Sujanpur village of Odisha, 196 kilometers away from capital Bhubaneswar. The locals then handed over the turtle to the Forest Department officials.

The forest official also said the turtle is unique and rare and wasn't seen in the area before.

"This is a rare turtle, I have never seen one like this," B Acharya, wildlife warden was quoted as saying by ANI news agency.

Forest officer Susanta Nanda said the turtle was most probably an albino and a similar aberration was recorded few years ago in Sindh.

He shared a closeup picture of the creature and said its pink eyes could be indicative of its albinism.
