OH WOW,are they ever cute,never seen white Squirrels before,I love the little creatures,but white that's so cute.
Great pics by the way!!
Does anybody know why they are white? They don't seem albino......or maybe there are white squirrels I just have not seen any?

They are cute chico. Very tough to spot in the winter:laughing: I even find them hard to see against the green of summer. One of these was only about 6' in front of me and I didn't notice him at first.

Very cute, Lukka'sma! I can't believe how close they let you get--you must offer only the finest, most delectable treats for them! :lovestruck:

Eau Claire has some white squirrels, too, chico--not albino...just white phase gray squirrels. There were some living around our old house. In another part of town, there is a colony of black phase gray squirrels. Just variations of the gray theme, I guess. :D

Wow thats neat!!! Does anybody know if the white squirrels have any health problems in comparison to grey/black/red squirrels???? Is it a mutation or a dilution?

Not being much of a geneticist I don't really know much about the health problems or life span of these little guys. They have been around here for as many years as I have been alive:laughing: (not the same ones though:eek: )
