Great White-tailed Squirrel



This is a rare photograph of the elusive Great White-tailed Squirrel, much rumored but almost never seen in the deep wilderness of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I captured it this morning in the back yard of the Writer's Lair. Click the photo for a good look.

  1. Actually, it's probably the offspring of a white-colored gray squirrel I spotted in the driveway of a couple of years ago. Color variations, some of them surprisingly exotic, are quite common for the species, but it's fun to yank the chains of urban tenderfeet.

  2. Looks like a bucktail on a squirrel. Better check the woodpile!
