Squirrels are cute to begin with and this albino one is just simply adorable. I haven't notice any albino ones in my area at all, mostly your typical grey & brown ones here...

There is a town in W Tn called Kenton. It is famous for its white squirrels. They are not albino. Just white squirrels.

This is rarity indeed. We have black, brown, red, grey...and now white (with red eyes)? Try staring this little critter down in a down alley. You won't see dawn.

if you take a black squirel & a white on & breed them will you get delmations?

White animals are very beautiful, but unfortunately its a horrible defect when it comes to survival. Unless of course, it's an arctic animal. :3

Odds are 100000 to 1 that you would know the difference between a white squirrel and a cryptid.

If the odds of a squirrel being albino are "1 in 100000", that means that EACH squirrel born has a 1 in 100000 CHANCE of being albino, not that 1 in every million is going to be albino. Like if your odds for winning a prize are 1 in 50, even if you buy 50 tickets, each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning; you won't necessarily win. Cute squirrel, though.

My town is one of many to claim to be the hometown of the black squirrel. I like all squirrels but albino anything scares me a bit especially an albino goat. Shudders.

I live in central Pennsylvania, and have also seen and photographed an albino squirrel that once lived on the property of one of my neighbors. Albinoism in animals, wild or domesticated, is really not as uncommon as people tend to think ;)

There's a town fairly close to me that has a protected population of black squirrels, actually. They're really cute and have no fear of people.

The name of the Town that has a high Albino Squirrel population is Olney, Illinois. I have relatives that live there and the population is like 75% albino squirrels. And yes the Police officer badge has the Squirrel on it and is town mascot.

Bietsh: What do you think albino means anyway?--No pigment cells, hello?

Not to far from where I live is a town known for its white/albino squirrels. It is the town of Marionville, Missouri. It is not very big at all, but it has several white squirrels.

There is a town in the usa which is full of them. Due to distant cross breeding no doubt. The local police insignia badge even features it.
Comment icon #3 Posted by lost-soul. on 4 May, 2006, 22:14
there are 2 albino squirels in the park just down the road from me, i've seen them around for a few years (although i don't know the average life span of a squirel so there could be more than 2) i live in the uk just south of london.
