You mean the things that they have been trying to get rid of? Good luck with that. My town pretty much wiped them out for the county 10 years ago.

Fox squirrels are alarming to see if you're used to the little grey squirrels around here. They look like they're the size of a small dog, as opposed to a New York rat.

Yeah...no. Their faces have nearly the EXACT same pattern and markings. I've never in my LIFE heard of fox squirrels having a "dark face mask" or even being described in anyway like that.

They should visit Indiana, I can actually hand feed a couple of Fox Squirrels in my neighborhood. They also like to steal my smaller tomatoes and sunflowers. One actually refused to leave me alone until I gave him a piece of chocolate. They are spoiled by us and a couple of neighbors. There aren't but one or two stray cats and dogs running around here, and they don't mess with the squirrels. Now on the other hand, you won't see a gray one unless you go to southern Indiana or near the Illinois boarder. We have one town here that has black squirrels, and them SOBs are mean.

Lest we forget the very dangerous black squirrel:

Said to roam in packs...jump innocent other squirrels and people when they least expect it.

Seriously.

I like how they think 85% of the population has been wiped out since pre-European times, but they have no idea how many there are now.

Seen it done. They took over an entire town and ran the fox squirrels out. They tried to migrate here, but they didn't come in a big enough pack and were either killed or ran off. I've also heard of them attacking people.

What drove them off? Let me guess, their Katrina checks were cut off.

Has anyone else in New England noticed the spread of black squirrels? They look like grey squirrels in size and shape, except for a solid black fur.

I first noticed one a few years ago. Now there's 3 or 4 (or 1 that really gets around). I haven't seen more than 1 at a time, but they've around different parts of town.

I friend of mine came up here (to Canada) from the US several years to go. Of all the things he noticed, it was the black squirrels. I thought they were native to the whole continent, and this guy's never seen one?

WHOA!!! HOLY shiat!!!! I have NEVER seen a squirrel like that. That's a badass looking squirrel.

I also noticed that they just changed the picture on the article to a SOUTHERN fox squirrel picture now.

It's also worth noting that they aren't even distinct breeds - two grey-colored ones can have melanistic (black) offspring. It's not that different from being albino.
