    Mike, after checking your site I decided to have a look to see if there are other places as I’d heard there was a town in Tennessee that had them.

    There are also white squirrels in Marionville, Missouri

    and here’s an article about the ones in Kenton, Tennessee

    From what I’ve read, they vye for tourists. The towns, not the squirrels. I don’t think the squirrels care. 🙂

    And it seems there are even more places! Florida, North Carolina …

    With so many places, Bob has no excuse not to pass through one of these towns and to take a few pictures.

    After looking at this squirrel picture again you know it kinda looks like the squirrel that Ray Stevens sings about in his song:Mississippi Squirrel Revival.tehe odds are not everyone in here is old enough to remember that song but Bob and myself is old enough to remember the song.

  7. I thought that fox squirrels had black rings around their eyes similar to a raccoon, but smaller and more squirrel like.

    Charlotte,

    This is what’s called a Fox Squirrel throughout most of North America. There is several species of squirrels but I have never heard of one with black rings like a raccoon.
