   The Gray Squirrel is perhaps the most familiar of all squirrels!

   Gray Squirrels are primarily forest dwellers, but have adapted to the encroachment of humans by becoming part of large city parks. You can often see them scurrying about, foraging for seeds, buds, and nuts.

Dr. Jungle says..."Rocky sure likes his pizza!"

"This is Rocky. He's a 1 year old Western Grey Squirrel, rescued as a baby from a cat, he was bottle fed and given full run of the house. The best pet by far!"... Jerry Donaldson

Scientific name: Sciurus carolinensis

Background:
   Gray Squirrels are native to North America, found mostly in the Eastern United States. They were also introduced to other areas of the world, such as Ireland, South Africa, and Great Britain.
   Their homes are in tree cavities or in bulky water-proof twig and leaf nests built in tree branches. They also dig burrows in the ground, but these are for food storage.
   They are generally a quiet little creature, but if alarmed will emit a harsh guttural "bark", flipping its tail with each squawk.
   Gray Squirrels eat acorns and hickory nuts throughout the year, though they may eat buds, tender twigs, seeds, and insects when the weather permits. Unlike their very active smaller cousin the American Red Squirrel, which needs large amounts of seeds and nuts to see it through the winter, the Gray Squirrel can subsist on a rather small quantity of buds and nuts, and will often sleep soundly through periods of stormy weather.
   They are not quite as fearless as the American Red Squirrel in the presence of humans, but will soon overcome their caution and come out to visit if you sit quietly.

Description:    Eastern Gray Squirrels are 17"-20" long, and 8 1/2" - 9 1/2" of this length is their bushy tail! There are marked color variations in this squirrel, so at one time they were described as four different species, but today they are all contained in one valid species.

Interesting Facts:    - Gray squirrels are so plentiful that they often have to regulate their
      populations by shooting them for sport, or poisoning and trapping them.
   - They are not nocturnal, and are most active at dawn and at dusk gathering
      food. They will generally spend the late morning and noon hours in the nest,
      coming out in mid afternoon, and then retiring for the rest of the night an
      hour or so before sunset.

    We have contacted this person via email and text, seemed legit as he replied. Asked to ship the squirrels however we lived close to his location and we did not want them to be shipped, we wanted to pick them up. We had it set up to meet with him and he never responded with the exact location. After multiple text messages and phone calls we gave up and went back to our home 2 hours away! Very upset as we just lost our squirrel and wanted to love 2 new babies! Appears to be a scam???

  • Randall Jenkins - 2018-09-20
    Hello Anis, thanks so much! The babies were delivered successfully. I woke up this morning to feed them but the male wouldn't eat avocado at all lol. The female on the other hand got some of mom's chocolate granola this and LOVES avocado. Any advise? Jenkins
  • Anis Kafo - 2018-09-20
    haha lol Avacado was the first solid food after the formula. He kinda likes it sometimes but he loves apple sauce! You can try Lima beans, strawberries, macadamia and pecans. That should work out. Anis
