The rare white squirrel came out in the snow at the Public Garden this weekend, captured by Kathleen Cook. The squirrel is apparently not albino, but a “white morph” mutation of an Eastern Grey Squirrel.

  1. I took a few photos of this squirrel on Halloween. It was the best costume I saw all day. I am glad to see he/she is alive and well!

    Interesting photo of a white squirrel which I never saw before. Keep on the prowl as you never know what you might see in the Public Garden.
