Description

Fox squirrel too fast for me, but this is the remains on his/her breakfast. This sp. has only shown up in the Ventura area in the last 2-3 years, but they are quickly becoming the most abundant squirrel in the area.

Is this "squirrel sign" an appropriate observation or does it need to be accompanied by a picture of the animal?

May be hybrid individual???
but not A. californicus because the wart tips on the back are red surrounded by black at the base.
