This creature was found near an office building in San Jose, California. The animal was a hybrid of some sort - a little squirrel and skunk. It had blue eyes!
Definitely hard to miss in these bushes!
It turns out this actually is a squirrel, a "piebald" one. Piebald refers to a spotting pattern that is seen in various animals (e.g. dogs, cats, horses, squirrels, birds) when there are large patches of white that exist over what normally would have been a darker pigment color.
Animals who exhibit this carry the piebald gene. This gene is related to the medical condition leucism, a reduced pigmentation condition.
What a beauty this creature is! What sort of unique creatures have you encountered?

Aren't you just in awe by the diversity of life and animals we have on our planet?
