White Squirrels of Brevard County, North Carolina
Photographer: Jenyfra Nelson
Location: Brevard Collage, North Carolina
The white squirrels are not albino; they are a rare squirrel that is mostly white, with a crop on top of their head that's dark grey. Hearing about them on a trip to Asheville, we drove over to the campus, asked a few students about them, and they pointed to a grove of trees. We thought they were tricking us, but, very soon, several squirrels came out - obviously used to humans, and were were taken by their beautiful coats, and quiet movement - they made no sounds. Very unusual, and worth the detour that day.
