According to a Swedish biologist at the National Museum of Natural History, it is super rare to see a squirrel with white fields than those with normal solid brown fur. This is because they are much better visible and thus become easier prey for predators such as pigeon hawks or martens. Evolutionary biologist Jessica Abbott at Lund University told Swedish news site, Dagens Nyheter, that it is probably some kind of mutation that is behind the squirrel's color mix.
