Sherman’s Fox Squirrel

Fox squirrels, a species of special concern, are harder to spot than the more common gray squirrel. They’re large and have dark faces with white ears and noses. Their name is believed to come from the unique way they run, which is similar to a small fox. Pine seeds are the fox squirrel’s favorite treat. All squirrels have impressive memories. They hide their food in thousands of different locations, and then can recall each spot later on.
