Re: color phase squirrels

I just looked it up, and melanism appears to be common in gray squirrels. So much so in areas it is the dominant color.

Re: color phase squirrels

Last 32 (soon to be 33 sigh) years has shown that I have two nemeses.

Black Squirrels and Palomino trout.

I'm sure one of them will be the death of me .

Re: color phase squirrels

If you want white phase, not albino, gray squirrels, a state park in Pensacola, Florida has them. Didn't see a single gray but did see 6 or 8 pure white ones. Don't know if the others were run off or not, just thought it weird and funny at the same time. The wife and i thought they were trash or styrofoam cups off in the distance at first until one moved. come to think of it, in Sharonville, Ohio there is an area with both gray squirrels and black phase gray squirrels.
