Fox squirrels (Sciurus niger) are new to Utah. Their arrival offers a unique opportunity to study the ecology of an introduced species. Help NHMU learn more about the fox squirrel as it spreads across Utah!
Thought I'd let this little guy say good morning for me also I have a Flickr friend (Paulette) that produces some fantastic squirrel images and I thought she would love to meet this fellow. I think the black and white face and the tail on these squirrels is so striking.
Some folks hate squirrels. Yeah. They consider them pests, much like opossums or moles. They call them "big rats with fluffy tails." Sure, they might steal a few seeds from the bird feeder or chew a few wires, but these animals definitely should get more love.
