Wow, one in 100,000… Just had to reblog this. A little ghoul all dressed for Halloween!
A true albino. They are distinguished by their red/pink eyes. I am not sure of this but I’ve read that it occurs in about every 100,000 squirrels. I photographed this little fellow, at a great distance and through brush, at Devil’s Den State Park here in Arkansas. There are true white squirrels called “white morphs” with black eyes. Another, which I have seen in the area of Eureka Springs, is a white spotted squirrel known as “Pilbald whites”.
