Wow. Never seen a squirrel like that. Should catch sand start a breeding project.

I don't think so, piebald is a common mutation that occurs in a lot of animals, and it generally isn't inheritable. At least in the instance of deer, foxes, etc. I know that piebalds can be bred in pythons, but I don't believe it's the case for squirrels.

Either way, it's a pretty squirrel!

Cool. I know melanistic (black) and leucistic (white) squirrels pop up "often" enough, and it wouldn't surprise me if piebaldism popped in every now and again as well. It's a cool-looking animal though.
