Squirrel Camouflage

This beautiful Florida Fox Squirrel is a good illustration of squirrel camouflage. The location is Estero, Florida. Which came first, the squirrel or the tree?

This Douglas Squirrel on Washington's Olympic Peninsula blends right in with the squirrel feeder.

This Costa Rican Variegated Squirrel blends right
 in with the living room.
Note: Variegated Squirrels (Sciurus variegatoides) are large, arboreal squirrels found in tropical woodlands and scrublands from southern Mexico to Panama. Throughout their range, Variegated Squirrels are amazingly variable in their coloration. (


  1. The first one is so cute!!

  2. Hey Dan, found any squirrels in Cali yet? Or are they so well camouflaged that you can't see them?
