Baby Albino Turtle Born With Her Heart Beating Outside of Her Shell Survived Against All Odds

According to Caters New Agency, the albino pinkbelly sideneck turtle was born with her heart exposed. In humans, this condition is called ectopia cordis, but in veterinary medicine there is no name for the life-threatening genetic defect. Even with her heart beating outside of her shell, the baby turtle, named Hope, has defied the odds and survived. Hope lives with her owner Michael Aquilina in New Jersey. Aquilina, known as AquaMike on Instagram, was given the turtle by a friend who felt Aquilina had the passion and experience to give Hope the longest, happiest life possible. The little turtle arrived at Aquilina's home in November 2018 and continues to grow stronger with each passing day.

A kitteh named Sugar survived a 19-story fall from her owner's Boston apartment.

Sugar landed on a small patch of mulch, which helped lessen the impact of the fall. Animal Rescue League of Boston assistant manager Mike Brammer said Sugar's "flying-squirrel"-like ability to glide also helped her survive the harrowing ordeal.

Sugar's hoomin, Brittney Kirk, who was tracked down via a microchip implanted in her cat, says she left the window open so that Sugar wouldn't get too hot. "[I]f there were a cat to fall 19 stories and to be fine, I think it would definitely be Sugar, because she's a pretty special cat," she said.

Special, indeed! Thank goodness kittehs have nine lives!
