Eastern Grey Squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis

Description:

Grey or brown fur, with a white colored stomach. Big bushy tail. Have sharp, clawed fingers that can hold onto anything. Hind feet are turned at an slight angle. These guys are very fun to watch and can move very quickly.

Habitat:

Dense areas of trees (forest, woodlands). Can be found in parks, backyards, etc. Very common around this area.

Notes:

These photos were taken a few months ago. These were some of the baby and juvenile squirrels that were either abandoned, injured, or orphaned in the wild. Here at P.A.W.S., they are cared for and "wild up" before eventually being released back into their natural habitat. These guys came in relatively young, but thanks to my awesome instructor/rehabilitator they were able to grow and be released.
