DENTON, Texas (AP) - University of North Texas students who have spotted the campus' albino squirrels say the rare animals have brought them "grade" luck.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the campus is full of stories of students who aced their tests after spotting a pink-eyed beauty.
A UNT spokeswoman says two albino squirrels -- known as Baby's Baby and Senor Blanco or Senorita Blanca -- are the third and fourth albino squirrels found living on campus in recent years.
A state urban wildlife biologist, Brett Johnson, says albino squirrels are pretty rare because they usually don't live long enough to reproduce.
And they stick out like a sore thumb -- to predators.
The white wonders have even inspired fan clubs.
