TUXEDOSQUIRREL1An extremely rare black and white squirrel is getting more than its 15 minutes of fame in The Annex and the TORONTO press. The unique little rodent has a white nose and ears. Its paws and tail are a mixture of white and black.  Alana Johns, a professor at the University of Toronto, took these pictures on her way to work. “I had never seen anything like it,” she told Metro News.
