Moment A Super Rare 'Albino' Squirrel Is Spotted In UK City Centre - And It's Adorable

A man in Edinburgh captured the unlikely moment a rare white 'albino' squirrel is spotted close to the city centre - and the little guy is as cute as you'd expect. 

Whilst we're used to seeing squirrels around local woodland, the animal lovers among us still get super excited when we spot the little guys scurrying and going about their business. But if there's one thing that will most definitely catch our attention - in the land of all things ordinary - it's going to be a rare woodland creature. Because, let's face it, it doesn't take a huge a lot to impress us Brits when compared to our neighbours Down Under.

Edinburgh man Carl Hurst spotted the little white furry creature near a McDonald's restaurant in Gorgie area. In awe of his luck, Carl quickly took to filming the unexpected companion - who, of course, was unaware of how rare he really was. Posting the clip online, Carl captioned it: "Had no idea they existed but spotted a white squirrel at work in Edinburgh today. Scared it off the closer I got. It had red eyes and apparently albino ones have red eyes."
