OK that title needs some sound effects behind it … something along the lines of dun, dun, dun! So have you heard about the sightings of white squirrels here in Toronto? We have so many squirrels in our City that most of us hardly ever notice them. It’s like they’ve become wallpaper, you know it’s there but hardly ever notice it, because it’s always there.
But squirrels, like their feathery counterparts pigeons (a.k.a. Rock Doves), are a lot more interesting than one might think. Have you noticed the colour of the squirrels in your neighbourhood? The main species of squirrel you’ll find in Toronto is the Gray Squirrel, even though they’re fur can often be black. I’ve also noticed many with rusty/red coloured fur (sometimes they’re even 1/2 gray 1/2 rust). There are even one’s with white fur.
