Black squirrel

Twiglet says:

I once saw a TV program about a colony of black squirrels. We once saw white squirrels in Upnor in Kent.

Ah, I see! I'd never seen one before today. It caused quite a coffee-time stir at the meeting I was attending :)

did you stop the meeting to look at the squizzle?

Euphro says:

Yes, definitely, and ran outside to get pictures :D

a squizzle? righteous word.

so, if a black squirrel can stop a meeting, what kind of squirrels do you usually see?

*coming from someone who didn't even think to blog all the grey and black squizzles around her.*

Are the black squirrels an introduced variety?

"squirrel, mid to late thirties, black and wearing a long bushy tail last seen running near exit to car park. approach with extreme caution..."

The tags do tell a "tail", but, Wikipedia tells it better :)

It's basically a mutant form of the eastern grey squirrel :)

swamprose says:

This squirrel is indigenous to N.America? Is this one is either a long way from home, or the new Cambridge mutant form?

Euphro says:

That is certainly the case, but North America has been very good at exporting them. They are all over Europe and I've seen them in Perth in Western Australia. The same mutation that makes them occasionally black in North America crops up wherever they are :)
