Albino Squirrel

There's been a lot of buzz and controversy in the hunting community over the shooting of a rare, albino moose in Nova Scotia, regarded as sacred to the local first nation peoples. Click HERE for a nice segment on the story.

Although not quite as grand as an albino bull moose, I've heard about albino fox squirrels in Kalamazoo, but this was my first time ever seeing one. Although not white, the albinism creates a beautiful, tan glow about this little guy. Of course, up close the eye is all pink. 

He was unusually friendly and approachable, even more so than your average squirrel. But then again, this isn't quite your average, every day squirrel.
