Going Nuts: The White Squirrels of Brevard

In Brevard, white squirrels make up about 25 percent of the total squirrel population. The animals have been protected by law within the city limits since 1986. The squirrels are not albinos; they have a gray patch on their heads, a gray dorsal stripe, and dark eyes. The squirrels exist in a number of towns east of the Mississippi. Brevard celebrates an annual White Squirrel Festival, and the local White Squirrel Shoppe sells white squirrel products, including mugs, candles, and ornaments.
