Sciurus niger shermani
There are a few of them that live in the neighborhood, as it is an ideal habitat for them. I sometimes see the squirrels chasing each other around the pine trees, and most often I see them sitting on fence posts as shown here.
Neighborhood with lots of pasture, pine, and oak with very little underbrush.
Considered a species of special concern and is protected. This subspecies is only in Florida.
