Ghost in the Shell!
I know absolutely zip about this particular turt, but thought I'd weigh in with a reasonable explanation for why it's being handled as a lot of people seem to be interested. There are many beaches that turtles use to lay eggs that have become tourist beaches. In order to ensure the survival of the turtles these beaches sometimes have teams of volunteers who will go out at night and watch for turtles who come up the beach to lay eggs. Once laid (with the mother having returned to the sea) the eggs will be dug up and collected. They then get buried in a large enclosed sand pit in a protected sanctuary on the beach. They put a marker with the laying date next to each batch so they know when to expect hatchlings, and hatchlings will then be kept in buckets of seawater as they hatch until sunset when they will be released on the beach to swim to the sea. So it would be quite easy for someone to notice the albino hatchling and take a photo at some point before it makes it's journey to the sea.
poor thing. Doomed.
If i were to touch this or any other baby turtles shell would it be soft like a new born baby's skull "soft spot", which later hardens, or would it already be born with a hard shell?
Aww, he looks like a little ravioli.
