Life Along the Banks: White Squirrel
Posted on Mar 1st, 2013

Most squirrels are red or gray but a white squirrel lives in the trees at the home of Mike and Suzanne Goodson, who are also owners of “Deputy Dawg”. Suzanne says the squirrel has been seen around their yard for a couple of years. It’s easy to spot scurrying along the yard looking like a white rag dancing across the ground, especially when being chased by a cowboy hat, chaps wearing Lab. Sounds a little nutty!

Squirrel Factoid: Here's a map of where the white squirrel population resides in the U.S. White dots indicate albinos with pink eyes, red dots indicate white squirrels with black eyes, and green dots indicate white squirrels with dark eyes and head patch and back stripe. 
The white squirrel sits on a tree in the Goodson's yard on the east bank of the river near the FM 521 bridge. Look closely at the tree knot that it is perched on, it resembles a squirrel’s head.
