Eastern Grey Squirrel

The Eastern Grey Squirrel comes in two colours - grey like this one and black like most of the squirrels I have shown you before. They are the same species and even within one litter there can be a mixture of colours. In Toronto it seems that the black ones outnumber the grey but that is just my personal observation.

This one looks like a well fed little fellow.

That's a really healthy looking chap. So many squirrels over here look a bit skinny and have tatty, spindly tails.

Grey is a bit too mouse-ish for a squirrel..

Such a fluffy tail!

They very cute! We have mostly little scrawny brown squirrels with little scrawny tails. Although we also have some fox squirrels that are brown and black and have a long, full tail. They look something like a fox.

I have seen a black one over here although they are usually grey, I'd love to see the red's make a comeback but very unlikely...

The gray squirrels definitely outnumber the black ones here, because I have never seen a black one!

I can't get over the size of their tails Pat, almost the same size as their bodies :) Cure little critters aren't they!
