KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Volunteers in South Carolina made an unusual find along the Kiawah Island shore over the weekend.
“You can imagine the excited ‘oohs’ and the ‘aahs’ from the guests, including some [College of Charleston] students, when the patroller found a lone, leucistic hatchling in the nest,” the town of Kiawah Island captioned a group of photos on Facebook.
The post added: “Leucism is a condition where animals have reduced pigmentation. Leucism is different from albinism as albino animals have a complete loss of pigment, leaving them completely white with red or pink eyes.”
