Darla

ALBINO COMMON SNAPPING TURTLE

Darla is a rescue albino common snapping turtle. Albinism is the absence of pigment is very rare and only occurs in 1 in 30,000 turtles. In the wild, albinos have a very low survival rate. Their light coloration makes it hard to blend into their environment which makes hunting and hiding difficult. Darla is safe here with us.

For the most part, snapping turtles are opportunistic predators. Their usual diet includes fish, carcasses, mollusks, amphibians, worms, snakes, water birds, crayfish, aquatic mammals and other turtles. Like other reptiles, they do not eat when the temperature is too cold or too hot because they cannot digest their meal.
