Like the pink cows, black sheep and ugly ducklings, you'll have the option to help or ignore the turtle. If you help the little critter, a notification will be posted to your Facebook feed (see image below), letting your friends know that they can adopt the turtle.
Once the turtle is adopted and placed on a farm, it can be harvested in three days for eggs. Rumors also say that, eventually, the turtles will turn into dinosaur-like animals. Let's just hope they don't nibble on your crops.
