Sherman's Fox Squirrels are a funky long-bodied squirrel with a very specific habitat preference.

The ideal area for the Sherman's Fox Squirrel is the tall open pine forest with low understory - like a cow pasture with pine trees.

They are particularly susceptable to car induced short lives because of their lack of road crossing skills!

All that said about their limitations .. is wiped out by a Fox Squirrel's 50 yards graceful running style. "Flying" close to the ground, with the long tail for guidance, they resemble fox - at speed.

They are a great photography subject because of their open habitat preference and they sleep in until 9:30-10:00AM.
