He finds a pink animal lying on the ground, which grows and becomes incredible.
A woman found a small pink animal outside her house and couldn’t believe her eyes. It was actually a pink squirrel. It caused a sensation on social media.
The woman took the squirrel to an animal shelter. There, they discovered that it was a female squirrel that had lost her fur due to a fungal infection. The infection affected the pigment in her fur and gave her a characteristic pink hue.
The animal began to recover
Shelter caregivers began treating the infection. The squirrel’s original brown and gray fur began to return. As the fur grew back, the pink animal began to look like a regular squirrel.
The animal, now known as “Rosie” is causing a stir on social media. Thanks to this, her story has gone viral around the world. The shelter’s caregivers have received a wave of donations to help cover the cost of her treatment and care.
Although the case of an animal named Rosie is rare, it is not the only example of an animal that has changed colour due to a fungal infection. In 2019, a squirrel in the UK was also found to have pink fur as a result of a similar infection.
In short, the story of Rosie the pink squirrel reminds us that animals need proper care and medical attention. In addition, fungal infections can be dangerous for animals and affect their physical appearance. Fortunately, Rosie is receiving the care she needs and her condition is improving.
Squirrel, a biting animal
The squirrel is a small rodent that is found in the wild in many open parks because its presence does not disturb the environment of these places.
Although the squirrels’ natural habitat is the forest, they have recently adapted to cities and urban areas. Far from being the elusive animals they once were, they can now be found in parks and green spaces near our homes. Watch a video of this beautiful squirrel named Rosie here.
