Can you spot "Snowflake" our albino squirrel?

Have you ever seen "Snowflake" at Aldridge Gardens? He's a rare white squirrel. His coat is a color variant within this highly variable species. The most common sightings of white squirrels are isolated individuals with a completely white coat but dark eyes, a condition known as leucistic. This variant appears to spring up sporadically all over the species’ range and then dies out, only to pop up again somewhere else. True “albinos” are even less common, probably because without the eye pigment to reduce glare, their vision is impaired and they may suffer more from falls.
