An Unusual Squirrel


Wait a minute. Does that squirrel have a raccoon tail?

Yes! This unusual squirrel started showing up in my yard the other day. I've never seen one like it. It arrives with a few standard eastern gray squirrels.

Here's one with a more standard tail for comparison.
In addition to the tail, the new squirrel has noticeable orange patches on the tops of its feet. Click to enlarge.

Here it is in action.

It's a very unusual and good looking squirrel and a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
