Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger)
A beautifully-colored fox squirrel with reddish fur searches for seeds and nuts on a late winter day in the Lower Rio Grande Valley near Weslaco, Texas. Common all over the Eastern United States, Northern Mexico, and some of the Canadian provinces such as Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario, this is the largest squirrel species in North America and can vary wildly in coloration from silvery-gray, reddish brown, jet black and sometimes white leucistic (not albino) ones can be found such as one group in Tallahassee, Florida.
