GRAY SQUIRREL 16 x 24, 1990
The eastern gray squirrel or grey squirrel is native to eastern North America. It has predominantly gray fur, but it can also have a brownish color. It has a usual white underside as compared to the typical brownish-orange underside of the fox squirrel. They have a large bushy tail. The melanistic form, which is almost entirely black, is predominant in certain populations and in certain geographic areas, such as in large parts of southeastern Canada. Melanistic squirrels appear to exhibit a higher cold tolerance than the common grey squirrel. It is interesting that genetic variations within these include individuals with black tails and black-colored squirrels with white tails.
