Eastern gray squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis


According to Marie Winn in the New York Times (25-Jul-2008): "The black squirrels you occasionally run into [in Central Park] are not color morphs. They are not melanistic individuals. They're just ordinary Eastern gray squirrels, except that they're black. Go figure."
