(CNN) – A white ball of fluff crawling across the lawn had visitors at the Seashore Trolley Museum in Maine confused!

This is what visitors saw outside the museum Tuesday.

At first, folks thought it might be an albino skunk, or groundhog.

Maybe a lost throw pillow?

After asking Facebook users, the furry visitor was ID’d as a rare baby albino porcupine.

The baby is still fluffy because it’s too young for its quills to hardened.

The museum is asking the public to help name the little guy.

In the running so far: Tribble, a star trek nod, marshmallow, snowball and herb, after the volunteer who discovered it.
