Howie and Deb Jacobs write: "An albino red squirrel we have been seeing near our home west of Pequot Lakes. We saw him first in the fall of 2020 and then again on March 14, 2020. This is when I took this photo. We still see him off and on but have noticed he stays under cover more when there is no snow on the ground."
"Leucism is a partial loss of pigmentation but the eye color remains unaffected," the AP reported. "Albinism is a congenital disorder and the eyes would appear pink or red."
