Eastern Grey Squirrel Sciurus carolinensis

Eastern Grey Squirrel Sciurus carolinensis

Mammalia > Rodentia > Sciuridae

Frequent species seen in all parks in and around Montreal all year long. Not very shy, frequently begging for food. Don't feed wild animals!

Distinguishable from the other squirrel species due to the fur color which usually is grey on the back. Two variants can be observed, the not uncommon dark variant with a dark brown almost black fur and the white variant which is very rare. Note that the white variant is not an albino.

Eastern Grey Squirrel can be observed almost everywhere, in all parks in and around Montreal. Even long the streets in between parks.
