Although not unheard of, black squirrels are somewhat of a rare sight in the American Parkway. Squirrels primarily are gray or brown, however there are some exceptions. For example, the Eurasian red squirrel is….....well, it's red. In certain regions of the American Mid-West you can find entire populations of squirrels with snow-white fur; a leucistic sub-group of eastern gray squirrels.
There is also the giant squirrel of India (pictured here) which can reach lengths of 3 feet; this squirrel has a two-toned coat of beige and purple! (I wish I took this picture, but no, I didn’t go to India.)
