This turtle was born with a bared heart. When the turtle was rescued, her human dad was fearful she wouldn’t survive.
This unique miracle turtle with her exposed heart, which her dad named Hope, gets very excited when she sees her dad that she flaps her arms and splashing the water whenever he comes close to her tank.
This courageous albino turtle born with an exposed heart defies the odds and inspires Hope to millions of people worldwide.
Her dad fed her with tongs several times a day initially as she couldn’t see well, as well as to make sure she was eating.
She comes right up to the tank as soon as her dad walks into the room.
We, as humans, can make a significant difference by caring and being gentle, helping those less fortunate in every possible way.
A turtles’ heart is rhythmic even when if deprived of oxygen. If you take away the turtles oxygen for about 6 hours and its resting heart rate will tumble yet, it will keep on beating.
For turtles, albinism is often a bit different than in humans. Of all the turtle species, Sulcata turtles are most likely to be albino. They are so beautiful and rare.
Turtles are ectotherms commonly called cold-blooded, which means their internal temperatures vary according to the ambient environment.
Turtles are classified as amniotes, along with other reptiles, birds, and mammals. Turtles breathe air, and although many species live in or around water, they do not lay eggs underwater.
Her dad said that people don’t think you can connect with a turtle like you can with a dog, but that is not the case.
