An Aggressive Species of Squirrel

As I was enjoying the mild weather I noticed what appeared to be a squirrel but was significantly larger and not a normal squirrel color.

The species is the Eastern Fox Squirrel and can grow to almost 2 feet long/tall and a much longer tail.

They are aggressive, however as I opened up a powerbar one fellow must have caught a wiff and came running right over.

This was within 3 feet of me and he looked like he wanted to jumo up and grab the bar.

It wasn't all about the squirrels, however, as a hawk came to ground with something caling it's attention.

Wow!  I don't think I would have stood there looking at the wildlife!  That squirrel looks a bit scary!  I am glad you survived.

We have a couple kinds of squirrels here in Sacramento.  Neither looks like the one pictured.  Your pictured critter looks like he could take on the world.

Hmm, when I saw the picture I was thinking that wasn't a squirrel but something else.

HI Ed... that is mega-squirrel if I ever saw one... actually somewhat scary. Of course those hawks aren't exactly friendly-looking either.

Hi Ed Silva - that is funny.  Maybe this time of year with limited food they are getting agressive.

CANDACE (Candy) STEVENS   I found myself being very attentive to where they were at all times.

Myrl Jeffcoat   I do believe that if a bird of prey were to go after one of these it would have it's claws full

Ed,

Wow! a mutant squirrel perhaps, and he took off when the hawk appeared.  We have crows building nests at the moment, and it groups chasing the hawks away.  A

Rocky Dickerson   in looking at the claws on these guys, I wouldn't want them that close to me.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel   From what I have read, they are not mutants, just large

Ed Silva I wonder if this is the type of squirrel that people are complaining about in the condos that they are saying do damage.

George Souto   I didn't care for the aggressive nature of that little guy.

Kathy Streib   I was closer than I wanted to be as well.

Ha ha Ed, that is truly a "squirrel" moment. I have those frequently but not really involving a living animal! :)
