White Squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis


The white squirrels found in Ochlockonee River State Park, Florida, are genetic mutations of the Eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis). They are not albinos and have black, as opposed to pink, eyes. Their coats are almost entirely white or a light gray in parts, with a thin black striping down their backs. They exhibit identical behavior to other tree squirrels in all aspects.


Ochlockonee River State Park in the Panhandle of Florida is one of several discrete locations in the United States in which these genetic anomalies may be found.
