Not sure about the validity of the aforementioned comments and/or expertise of the respondents... however this squirrel lived on and around my Connecticut property for a season... NO other were seen in the area... so in my humble opinion, and the opinion of others in Connecticut, including some with reasonable credentials, .... it well could be an albino. Or perhaps and illegal... don

The Central Texas white squirrels are quite well known and have been thoroughly studied. They are all descended from a small colony of Tibetan Snow Squirrels that were kept as pets on the grounds of a Buddhist Monastery in the Hill Country near San Marcos. The monks, being for the most part native Texans, drank a good bit and smoked prodigious quantities of weed, and for that reason sometimes tended to be a bit un-focused and over-relaxed, and one by one the squirrels, tempted by the lush greenery and numerous pecans groves in the region, escaped and became naturalized. Wildlife biologists from A&M have estimated the total population of Tibeten Snow Squirrels in Hays, Comal, Bastrop, Gonzales and Caldwell Counties alone at over 35,000, with scattered populations in several other counties I have personally observed them many times dashing across back roads late at night, and individuals have ben reported as far east as Brenham and as far west as Uvalde.

Not an albino. This is a Tibetan Snow Squirrel. They live at elevations above 12,000 feet and subsist on lichen, mosses, snow berries and other high altitude plants. Not many westerners have seen them because they are virtually invisible against the snow-covered terrain which is their habitat.
