Eastern Grey Squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis

Description:

This adorable little lady is an orphan from Hurricane Hermine. She was only about 4 weeks old when she came to live with me. We raised her with a pet nurser bottle, then weaned her to raisins, yogurt, pecans, walnuts, hickory nuts, and even mealworms! As you can see she has grown up, and now lives free outdoors in a sturdy birdhouse on our back porch, climbing trees , scolding my hens, and pouncing on my head if I fail to play with her!

Habitat:

My backyard, central Florida

Notes:

1st and 3rd pics are taken September 7, when she first came to me. Eyes not quite open yet... One eye opened the following day, the other a full week later! Last picture is her first attempt at eating a pignut hickory nut. I had to crack it open for her. Taken October 1, 2016 2nd shot taken September 30, after she moved into her new house! My absolute favorite photo of her. Third and fourth shot taken September 7, 2016, the day I received her. Eyes not quite open.
