There are many tree squirrels on trees near by my house in Pune. My house is bit outskirts of Pune & there is good plantation in near by area. I spotted a strange movement & thought that it might be some different bird . Surprisingly it was a juvenile white tree squirrel.
I don’t know if it is normal habitat of these squirrels in Pune or not.
I saw same sized many juvenile squirrels but only this one is odd. Is it possible that this is tree squirrel but born white due to some deficiencies ? Experts please comment.
I hope this cute animal doesn’t become pray to Shikra or any other raptor due to lack of camouflage.
