You can see this white squirrel is not albino by her black eyes. She has a sparse dorsal stripe of black hairs and a few on her head. She is a white-phase eastern gray squirrel from Brevard, NC USA. I was fortunate to receive this squirrel to raise and release.
Little pockets of white squirrels live in North America. Brevard is one of the places that has a White Squirrel Festival to celebrate squirrels. It’s held on Memorial Day weekend in late May.
