White turtles are considered to be unique for their white color that makes them more beautiful unlike other normal turtles that we usually see and come in different colors. The white color that appears on the body of white turtles is caused by a lack of pigments that can be found in the cells of other normal turtles that spread around the world.

The white turtles can be divided into two types or groups concerning the white color since there are white turtles which have the white color because of the lack of pigments in the cells as we said before, but on the contrary, there are other white turtles that actually have pigments in their cells but there is an enzyme that is absent and thus prevents the ordinary colors of turtles from appearing on the skin making these turtles white in color. This means that it is not necessary for all the white turtles to be albinos.

There is not a specific place in which these white turtles appear as the main reason behind exposing the white color is the lack of pigments or absence of a specific enzyme which can happen to any turtle around the world.

It is not necessary for the white turtles to be completely white as there are some turtles that have the white color accompanied by another color or more than one color especially on the shell more than the skin.
