I don't know how rare this is, but this is what I saw today!

I've only ever seen an albino squirrel and that was it.

I kinda got interested in albino animals long, long ago. I used to be interested in lions and tigers when I was a kid. One day while browsing the library, I came across a book called "The White Lions of Timbaviti". It was about a pair of lion cubs that were born in the wild and came out white instead of the regular gold/brown colors.

Albino white animals are rare, but not necessarily unheard of. ;)

Holy Crow!  You saw an albino squirrel??!?!?
I am excited because ... well it is a long story... but I was a teenager riding my mountain bike in my home town, after a long day on trails just outside of town, and I was dehydrated and such and hot... and I thought I saw a white squirrel but people told me I was hallucinating!

Oh, look! An albino squirrel!

Chases it through the park and watches it climb a tree.

Woof, woof! Woof! Bark. Bark, bark! Growl. Woof.

There was video of an albino raccoon someone brought to Oklakon.

I've seen ermine, but that's just a winter-phase weasel. Saw a white pine marten once, possibly. It stashed a dead mouse into a log I happened to be seated on.

I've never seen one. I do have an albino oc though. He's a coywolf named Alabaster.

I forgot my albino wolf bat Nosferatu  :D
And yes she's named after a vampire and inspired by Bartok! I love that little bat.
