White Squirrel at the Tallahassee Museum
My grandson and I visited the Tallahassee Museum, a 52-acre museum located in southwest Tallahassee on Lake Bradford. It features a natural habitat zoo, including Florida panthers, red wolves, white tailed deer, bobcats, an 1880's farmstead, historical buildings and scenic grounds. We spent most of our time on the nature trails where I took this picture of a white squirrel. He was pretty quick and I was lucky to get this shot! White squirrels are a genetic mutation of the common gray squirrel and are not albinos, as some people think. Some of them have gray spots. This one had a little bit of gray on his head and back.
