Camera Critters Sunday 1

Misty Dawn is doing a Sunday Camera Critters where you post photos of animals. Check it out.

Now I'm asking you what is this sneaky little guy. They are quite prevalent in Kent but hard to capture when foraging for food.
Oh my, The famous Black Squirrel of Kent, Ohio.
I told their story a little while back.

Oh my gosh - I have GOT to send the link to this post to my boss. I've told you before that his office is in Kent. Well, he hates these black squirrels, because they got in his attic once and chewed the wires and almost set a fire. But, he's not cruel, so he traps them, and then takes them and lets them go by the dam or in Towners Woods. Hehehe I think they are so cool and cute, but don't tell my boss I said that hehe

Thank you SO much for joining CC. It really means a lot to me, and I hope to see more of your critter photos each week!

I love your name....fish guy! My hubby is a fishing freak! He loves bass the best though. I've never seen a black squirrel before, but we have gray ones here.

I just learned about black squirrels when we moved to the UP a year ago. He's really cute.

Kostas said...

First time I see black squirrel as the one that exists in your photographs.
Therefore that we learn always something!

Me & my puppies said...

I, too, have not seen a black squirrel. But they sound just like their cousins, the over abundant, grey squirrel, that we have here.

Oh I saw black squirrels in Michigan on vacation on year and thought them to be gorgeous! They are. I have red ones, you have black ones! But those black ones are three times bigger than my chipmunk sized squirrels.

Never heard of black squirrels til now. . . I have a squirrel too way up in the tree but a different kind. Come and see it.

Oh, wow...I've never seen one of these IRL! They look BEAUTIFUL! We have the "plain" squirrels in these parts (SE, TN).

That's what I love @ blogging--seeing things I didn't even know existed. Thanks!!

Oh...and PLEASE don't have music on your blog. I'd love to come back but hate blogs with automatic music. Blech.
