Eastern Grey Squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis


This squirrel has a golden coloured tail. This is what I found: but others say it is a mutation...see links in Notes.


Taken by my cousin in his backyard in West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.


This photo was clicked by my cousin Prasenjit Dattaroy. He sent it to me because he wanted to know why this squirrel has a golden tail and if it is a mutation or an aberration. I have his permission to post it on PN ...I thought this was a cool fact to share.
