    I saw a red squirrel three days ago with a solid white tail. I told my dad and my friends about it. No real sure everyone believed me. Today I was with my dad and while driving I looked up and slammed the brakes. THERE IT IS!!!! it was at the base of a tree with another squirrel of normal color. We watched it for about thirty seconds and dad realized there was another one with a white tail about half way up the tree. TWO of them. Anyone know what the deal is with these squirrels?? Part Albino?
     

  2. You guys have black squirrels around you? Michigan City is loaded with those suckers......
     
  3. we got some black squirrels...quite a few in manchester...
     
  4. A bunch of 'em in Auburn too. The white tail is a recessive genetic trait, a mutant of sorts...... Kind of like our own Dean Weimer..........;)
     
  5. Funny I seen this post, I seen a squirrel the other day with no tail, but he seemed to get around ok. I figured he would have a lot of trouble with his balance.
