When theAntler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary, which is located in northern New Jersey, received a litter of tiny baby squirrels, they could immediately tell there was something special about one of the critters.
The precious bundle of cuteness was taken in by the facility earlier this year and nestled in with his fellow eastern gray squirrel siblings a stark white coat made him standout from the rest. As you might guess by the breed’s name, they are typically a gray color rather than this snowy shade, but the little guy totally rocks it.
They weren’t sure if he was albino until he opened his eyes to reveal red eyes as confirmation, making him one of the most rare animals on the planet. It also, unfortunately, makes him a much easier target for predators out in the wild, but he seems to be enjoying life at the sanctuary just fine.
They named him Filbert and unlike his siblings, he won’t be going back into the wild since he’s such a target for predators. Two of his sisters are also staying with him to keep him company and the shelter, which is completely non-profit and run on donations.
