      I saw a white albino squirrel in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada on my way to work yesterday. It ran out in front of my car but I didn't hit it! I think it is rare to see one here!

      I am a new PhD student. I saw the squirrel last Tuesday. It actually walked up to me and started to step on my shoe. He seems fearless!
