Sandia, a volunteer, noticed these larvae in the water bowl of a lizard in the nature museum. Steve Fend identified them under the microscope. They may be in the genus Dasyhelea, but we decided to wait and see if they grow larger and possibly rear to adult stage.

Eastern Gray Squirrel Sciurus carolinensis

Description

This squirrel gathered numerous Boletus mushrooms over a two day period at McClellan Ranch. It would sometimes pause to eat a bit before scampering up a tree with the mushroom, only to shortly come back down and seek out another Boletus. In Europe, Red Squirrels "pick" a variety of fungi (mainly boletes) and store them in trees where they dry. The dried stores are then eaten through the long winter and form up to 25% of the diet. For this reason Boletus are sometimes referred to as "squirrel's bread".
