Rare white sea turtle found on South Carolina beach

KIAWAH ISLAND, South Carolina (AP) — Volunteers checking sea turtle nests on a South Carolina beach in the United States (US) came upon a rare sight – a white sea turtle hatchling crawling across the sand.

The town of Kiawah Island posted on its Facebook page that the Kiawah Island Turtle Patrol found a lone white baby sea turtle last Sunday. Photos show a tiny turtle that’s a creamy white colour rather than the more typical gray or green of a sea turtle.
