Squirrel with Melanism

26 Feb


Hard to tell from this terrible photograph but the picture is of a red squirrel (I believe).  Black squirrels are not native to the area and I have never seen them in local cities like in other parts of Canada so I think this one is melanistic,  which is like the opposite of being albino. Not to mention it is not slow like a regular grey/black squirrel.  I have some better shots on my camera and will upload someday.


(the essence of laziness… A picture of a picture of the first day I saw it (and grass.. Wow!) … Don’t worry, the original picture quality is quite poor too)
