And you are a fan of social networks, you may have seen these images before. All-blue squirrel was filmed in a garden in the United States. But when is this video dated and is it faked? And above all, what about this amazing animal? Do blue squirrels really exist? We tell you everything.
A video shot in March 2020
Although this video seems implausible, it was nevertheless shot without special effects. We tracked down the person who filmed this blue squirrel. This is Keith Mouis, an American who lives in Yorkvillee, Illinois.
Keith Mouis shared this video on his Facebook account March 29, 2020. Quickly, it was very divided and commented. More than 119,000 shares and 3,600 comments have been recorded on this Facebook post.

The “Froggies” jump on French frogs, still too rare
A pioneer in the breeding of frogs in France, Patrice François provides many tables, from 3 stars to the bistro, but despite the 100,000 batrachians of his Drôme farm, restaurant owners are still hungry for fresh thighs. “made in France”. There are only a handful of farms in France. “I didn’t think it could be so hard to raise”, explains to AFP the boss of François Production, in the middle of dozens of ponds teeming with frogs installed under 2,500 m2 of greenhouses in a tropical tuft.
New Caledonia, a “bubble” without Covid
“We still feel a bit in a bubble”, admits general practitioner Hugues Bourgeois from his office in Nouméa. 18,000 km from Paris, New Caledonia is one of the very few territories in the world to have escaped the Covid-19 epidemic. Here there are no masks, no social distancing, and for its inhabitants life is “like before”.
A new species or a squirrel dyed blue?
In the comments, many wondered how a squirrel could be blue. If some are ecstatic at the “beauty” of this creature, the vast majority of people thought he was probably dyed blue.
In the video, Keith Mouis himself repeats several times that this squirrel had surely been dyed blue. “He’s got to be dyed” he blurted out. At the end of the video, he films the animal from the side and clearly notices that part of the squirrel is not completely blue, which seems to support this theory.
Some animals can be blue: birds, fish, frogs, iguanas … more never has a blue squirrel been seen so far. The most likely thesis is therefore the coloring of a simple American gray squirrel.
It would therefore be the work of a human very little respectful of the animal world. This kind of practice can be very dangerous for the health of the animal. First of all because its body can react badly to the dye but also because it makes it much more visible to its predators.
