In my modest opinion that looks like a snapper. Keep all limbs away in a few year.

The ecomuseum is all about only taking animals that are already wounded or unable to function in some way, so yes, it’s an albino turtle. I guess they figure that the albino’s chances are a lot better in captivity than in the wild (they also had an albino frog and I think an albino something else.)

also, an opossum with a giant opossum wheel that it was running in.

“Albinism” simply refers to a lack of certain pigments in the eyes or
the entire body of the turtle. In other words, any turtle species (or
at least many) can be “albino”. This turtle happens to be an
albino snapping turtle. I wonder if it would make albino turtle soup.

yes, “albinism” refers to a lack of pigments, but it also refers to people or “things” that are, like, totally white, or whatever.
