Leucistic.

Not sure if I Posted this before.
It is a leucistic chipmunk that Anne and I saw in London, Ontario 10 years ago.

Tamias striatus
Though you may see chipmunks around each other, they are not social animals. They like to keep to themselves and only interact during mating season, which is in the spring.

They are most active at dusk and dawn. Chipmunks spend most of their days foraging. A single chipmunk can gather up to 165 acorns in a day
