A man spotted this creature outside his office building in San Jose, California. Not only is the animal black and white, but it also has bright blue eyes. It’s as if it’s part squirrel, part skunk and part character from a cartoon.
In reality it is actually a squirrel that has something referred to as “piebald,” which is a coloration that arises sometimes in many mammal populations (cats, dog, cows, horses, fox, mice, rats). In the wild, they are easy prey so usually don’t live to reproduce.
Oh nature, you’re full of surprises.
