White Groundhog (Virginia)

This white groundhog has lived near College Lake in Lynchburg VA for at least five years, according to Bob Martin, who took this photo. White groundhogs are called "albino" but typically have pink eyes, however, this one's eyes are dark brown. Bob believes that this hog owes his long life to an underground abandoned drainage pipe that caused it not to have to cross the road on top of it.

I saw this very groundhog twice in 2006 waddling along the bushes beside highway 501. :)
