Are! It be the White Squirrel!


Are! It be the White Squirrel!

"Moby Dick" reference... anyone anyone? No? okay then.


A few days ago my mom and I looked out at the feeder and we found a white squirrel. We thought at first it had to be a ferret but Not with that tail. It's not a true albino though because the eyes are black, instead of pink.


And it's body is more like a pale gray than white. Not sure what to make of this. There are white squirrels in the world and even some populations in the US. It seems to just be a color pattern going around. Makes sense I guess, we have black and white rabbits after all.
