White Fox Squirrel
White fox squirrel photographed in Tallahassee, Florida. Its white fur is a leucistic trait - the hair is actually white, not colorless - so it's not an albino. Most (up to 80%) of the fox squirrels in this area have this trait, which is unusual compared to their typical dark gray to jet black coloring.
