According sources the rare turtle was rescued on Sunday by the villagers, who then called the Forest Department Officials and handed the turtle over to them.
Susanta Nanda, a senior member of the IFS said the turtle was probably an albino, "A reared yellow turtle was spotted & rescued in Balasore, Odisha yesterday.
" Most probably an albino. One such aberration was recorded by locals in Sindh few years back."
Wildlife Warden, Bhanoomitra Acharya described the turtle as unique, as he had never seen a specie like that before.
"The whole shell and the body of the rescued turtle is yellow. This is a rare turtle, I have never seen one like this," Acharya said.
