Albino squirrel caught on camera

5 posts in this topic

These extraordinary pictures capture one of Britain's rarest animals - an albino squirrel.

The red-eyed rodent was glimpsed by wildlife enthusiast Patrick Sullivan, 66, in a park near his home almost three months ago.

But despite regularly stalking the woodland he was never able to capture the rare animal on camera.

Not that rare I believe, but gorgeous all the same I think :)

Must be difficult to keep its fur snowy white.

Are albino critters socially excluded by their group? Anyone?

My guess is he wont live to long because he'll be easily spotted by predators

Pretty little thing, isn't he? I've read that albinos are sometimes rejected by their own kind, including in some human cultures.
