|Holy cow. Great picture. Isn't that interesting? I wonder if someone at your local wildlife sanctuary would be able to ask that question.
I would think that similar genetics would apply to all mammals, but I just don't know about squirrels!
I think that there is a difference between white coloring and albino. A true albino is actually missing pigment as opposed to be colored white. I think it's the missing pigment that makes the eyes unable to take sunlight.
And that's about as much as I know. Thanks for posting that. And congrats on your new camera. I'd feed the squirrel a few extra peanuts as he was the justification for your new toy. ;-)
