With Fall here the squirrels are busy. There’s lots of food for them now with the acorns and hickory nuts ripening. At the PGT we have Grey Squirrels, Fox Squirrels and the nocturnal Flying Squirrels. You can find squirrels anywhere there are trees, especially if there are nuts. #squirrel #fall #mammal #nature #wildlife #naturephotography #ArtForHealing #HealthcareDesign #fineartphotography #evidencedbasedart #wallart #healingart #artwork Sciurus carolinensis Fox, Art, Animals, Animais, Animaux, Cute Animals, Squirrel Tattoo, Fox Squirrel, Dieren

The fox squirrel, also known as Sciurus niger, is the only species of squirrel – of tree squirrel, specifically – which makes its home in the wide, wide Great Plains. The fox squirrel gets its name due to coloring, which some people refer to as ‘rufous’. That is basically a color that incorporates strong shades of red along with undertones of orange and a yellowish kind of pink. Learn more about Fox Squirrels on our website.
