Fox Squirrel

We often see these large and bushy fox squirrels when in Texas. Luckily I managed to capture this one looking down from a tree with a background of Mimosa blossom.

These squirrels are not at all afraid of human beings, but just maintain a wary distance.

This is one of five types of North American squirrel.

One thought on “Fox Squirrel

  1. I’d never heard of a fox squirrel. He looks like one of our grey squirrels with a fox red belly. If one were to make a list of animals that were NOT on any endangered species list, surely squirrels would be at the top of the list!
