a cute black squirrel
could someone please help me identify what species this is?
I will do that!
That's OK. You've edited the map; that's good. Did you also know that you can change the Common Name and add the scientific name as well? Just go to the "Edit this spotting" in the upper right of this page and add or change the information. Then go to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes". Again, thanks for being involved; Hope you're having fun with it.
Thanks for commenting, Gordon! Sorry, the place I put was actually wrong. I spotted in Vancouver.
Most gray squirrels are gray, as their name implies. But a few are black and that is what you've photographed. Black colored gray squirrels are not uncommon in some areas and relatively rare in others. I didn't realize that eastern gray squirrels lived this far north and west. I've learned something! Thanks for being a part of the Project Noah community.
