Residents of Arkansas City, Kansas, have fallen in love with an albino (white) squirrel living in the city. Apparently, this is the only such albino squirrel in the city because they are having a naming contest for the squirrel. Some of the current name suggestions include Arky, Blizzard, Snow White, Casper, Snowball, Powder Puff, Snowflake, Albi, Lucky and Angel. Here are some Arkansas City albino (white) squirrel pictures.
Per the Wikipedia page for squirrels, white Squirrels can be found in Kansas City, Kansas, Olney, Illinois, Brevard, North Carolina, Marionville, Missouri, and Oberlin, Ohio. There have been sightings in Effingham, Illinois, Lemont, Illinois, Laurel, Maryland, Washington, DC and Burnsville, MN.
Also from Wikipedia, Albino squirrels are thought by some to be a source of good luck. Olney, Illinois, is home of the world's largest known albino-squirrel colony. The Albino Squirrel Preservation Society was founded in 2001 at the University of North Texas to celebrate the proliferation of white and albino squirrels on campus. There are eight college chapters of the ASPS across the United States, Canada, and England.
He is a live link to the Albino Squirrel Preservation Society. The first time I heard of squirrels was the white albino squirrels of North Carolina. In fact, I want to credit Christy Hargrove of the University of North Carolina at Asheville for introducing me to white albino squirrels through her Squirrels R Us website.
