Yellow tortoise rescued from Faridpur.

According to local sources, a young man named Riyadh from Ambikapur village was fishing in a canal near the river. At one stage, the yellow tortoise was caught in his net. Later, the Faridpur District Social Forest Department got the news and rescued the tortoise.

Faridpur Divisional Social Forest Officer confirmed the incident. Kabir Hossain Patwari said that the tortoise is an entirely new species. It is yellow. The tortoise weighs about 1.5 kg and has a diameter of 6 inches.

Md. Kabir Hossain Patwari further said that for the time being, the tortoise had been kept in a reservoir of the forest department at Gangavardi in Faridpur Sadar. The Department of the Wildlife Extension and Nature Conservation Department in Khulna has been informed by taking pictures of the tortoise. The next step will be taken as per his advice.

Despite repeated phone calls, it was impossible to speak to Nirmal Kumar Pal, Divisional Officer, Wildlife Extension and Nature Conservation, Khulna.

However, Azad Kabir Hawlader, officer-in-charge of the Karamjal Wildlife Breeding Center in the Sundarbans in Bagerhat, said it might have been a sundial tortoise. However, leucistic losses are usually matte and gray. In this case, it may have turned yellow due to genetic changes or some other reason.

A yellow tortoise was rescued from a pond in West Bengal, India, in October last year. Earlier in July, a tortoise of the same color was found in Odisha, India.
