A nice shot Ed. I'm on the hunt for one now. I know where it lives, but these 6 day weeks are giving me limited opportunities... ~ Ron

There's one that lives 2 streets over from me. Haven't seen him in a few months. I'll take a walk tomorrow and see if he's around and take a quick pic. Also took some pics of another near my work about an hour from my house. They're pretty cool to see.

Hi Ed. Nice shot of a cool looking squirrel. I have actually seen quite a few of them. I went to school at Western Kentucky University and there were several running around campus. The school paper even ran an article on them at one point talking about how a recessive gene was the cause and that they were not albino as many students believed.

Nice one Ed! I've never heard of white squirrels but there are a few black ones here and there.

Had one across the street from my home in central Florida a couple of years ago. I haven't seen it since but I was able to snap a few shots of it when I first saw it. Unfortunately there are a lot of hawks here and I don't think a white squirrel has much of a chance of decent camouflage...

I spotted it running across the road when I was coming home and wasn't sure what the heck I had seen. It seemed to be in a hurry to build a home of some kind in the oaks. What a treat it was. I also went straight to the internet and found that they are a bit of a phenom around the country.
