Any clear photos you would like to share is appreciated.
There are two major types of muscle on a turkey-white meat (muscle), with low levels of myoglobin, and dark meat (muscle), with higher levels. Myoglobin is similar to hemoglobin which stores oxygen in the blood cells. Higher levels of myoglobin are found in muscles which are more heavily used. It is responsible for the darker pigmentation in dark meat.
Found this while looking for a picture for you.
