Eastern Gray Squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis


Spotted this juvenile (Eastern?) squirrel in a suburban backyard. I do not think it is albino because its eyes appear to be dark (not pink or blue).

Fyn, Daniele
Thank you. I agree that this is an Eastern Leucistic Grey squirrel. I first spotted the young squirrels - 2 grey and 2 white - high in a tree. It has only been in the past week that I have seen 2 of them - 1 white and 1 grey - on the ground.

Hi cchellis22! If it's eyes are dark it's a leucistic grey(Eastern grey squirrel):
