Elusive as Bigfoot: White Squirrels

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 6th, 2007

Remember my blogs at the end of last year, about black (melanistic) and white (albino and near albino) squirrels? Those stories became some of the most popular (non-mystery photo) postings that have appeared here. See 2006’s Top Black and White Squirrel Locations, Yahoo’s Makes Us #1 With Salt & Pepper Squirrels, and Black and White […]

Yahoo: “Salt & Pepper Squirrels” #1

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 12th, 2006

The Once And Future University of North Texas White Squirrel. A Cryptomundo correspondent at Princeton University just passed this along: I see that your salt-and-pepper squirrel article made the # 1 spot (always reserved for cute critter pictures) on The 9 at Yahoo.Com. — my absolute favorite, must-watch M-F wrapup of the weird and wonderful […]

2006’s Top Ten White & Black Squirrels’ Hot Spots

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 30th, 2006

Here are two new fun lists for 2006. They represent my top ten choices (each) of white and black squirrels’ hot spots tied to their sightings and appearances. White squirrels are infrequently albino (with pink eyes) and more often near-albinos (with dark eyes). The more numerous melanistic and near-melanistic (often looking brown) squirrels are celebrated […]

White & Black Squirrels…and Ligers too

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 30th, 2006

The Once And Future University of North Texas White Squirrel. (This posting today is done in conjunction with my two end-of-2006 lists on white and black squirrels). Portland, Maine, is the new city on Frommer’s list of the top world destination in 2007, as I mentioned yesterday. Now it turns out, the city has a […]

Black Squirrel Expedition

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 26th, 2008

Black squirrels are a common topic here at Cryptomundo. As fate would have it, I had a recent encounter of the black squirrel kind that set me to thinking about the origins of their pocketed appearances around the continent. Black squirrels in Harvard Square and at Kent State may be linked in more ways than […]

Black Squirrel Research Funded

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 11th, 2008

There is news of a considered and thoughtful educational effort to do “black squirrel” research. Due to a growing population on Long Island, New York, a new “Black Squirrel Headquarters” has sprung up in the Lake Grove neighborhood. Noting the black squirrels have also “colonized suburban Washington D.C.; Reedsburg, Wis., and Princeton, N.J.,” Bill Roe’s […]

Arthurian White Stag Reported

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 13th, 2008

Almost mystical in nature, white animals garner human attention, as this new story demonstrates. There is nothing truly cryptozoological about albino or nearly albino animals, any more than there is about melanistic ones. Neither are hidden, certainly, as their very appearance and finding them makes the news. Actually, their appeal has everything to do with […]

Ratatosk Predicts Red Sox Victory

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 30th, 2007

I’ve spent some time here discussing melanistic or black squirrels. It seems only logical, perhaps even nuts, to not ignore the significant publishing of an article in today’s New York Times regarding some squirrel lore that can be seen to unfold in the coming weeks. What is being set up is a testable experiment. If […]

Biological Curiosities

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 30th, 2006

Cryptozoologist Craig Heinselman of Peterborough, New Hampshire, shares a long commentary on his reaction to my recent blogs on black and white squirrels and more, which may be found by clicking here. Heinselman writes: Part of the interest as well in these “biological curiosities,” is that they can allow for correlations to perception of people […]
