Check out what was spotted at Beaver Lake - an albino squirrel!
Park Ranger Dylan Edwards discovered him in a park tree. He said the little fella currently lives in a hollowed out oak tree and doesn't stray too far from home, probably because of his poor eyesight.
Arkansas Game and Fish says he is, in fact, an Albino and not just "white". "This squirrel has pink eyes signifying the absence of melanin and pigmentation which probably affects his vision," said the organization, on their Facebook page.
The chances of a squirrel being born with albinism? Roughly 1 in 100,000.
