Eastern Fox Squirrel

Sciurus niger

Description:

gray fur on top and mustard fur on underside; tail is brown-gray and bushy; big black eyes; about the size of a small-ish rabbit

Habitat:

I see them everywhere. They especially like to live in the attic above my room. :-/

Notes:

It kept making a sneezing sound---I think it might've had a respiratory disease. That, or it inhaled too much insulation. :-) :-/

My dad CLAIMS he released him...but I'm not sure if I should believe him or not.

Did you trap this guy in your attic? What happened to him - was he released?
