Fox or Squirrel?
This little fellow was scampering all over the grounds at Brookgreen Gardens near Myrtle Beach, SC. I didn't know what he was at the time - other than a squirrel, that is! Upon questioning someone there at the gardens, I was told it was a fox squirrel. It is the largest tree squirrel in the US. They range in color from black with white ears and noses, black and brown, or the classic grey with a black mask, white ears and nose. In this phase, they look like a raccoon, giving them another name, the coon squirrel.He certainly was cute - a bit elusive though!
