I’m Not Like the Others – Delmarva Fox Squirrel

Delmarva Fox Squirrel

Hi ! My name is Fred and I’m not like the other squirrels. In fact, I’m an endangered Delmarva Fox Squirrel.

My cousins and I only number around 20,000 and live in the eastern shore of Maryland and Virginia. My favorite hangout spot is within the pine forests of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge, Maryland.

If you’re lucky while on the wildlife loop, I may just stop nearby to say hello.

  1. Wow! He’s a fluffy guy. I love my boring normal (Eastern grey) squirrels here and know them by their unique markings. I think this guy would have stuck out as different to me. He’s a bit rounder! Ha ha!

    • Indeed, the conservation is working as they have been removed from the national endangered list this past winter. But still on the state one. It was a lucky viewing. Not many people get to see one.
