Strawberry roan squirrels at Ladybird Lane
February 24, 2014
We have two of the oddest looking squirrels in our backyard. They have bright strawberry blonde tails and their coat, while still mostly grey, has this reddish roan appearance especially in the bright sun. They have enough extra of this strange mix of white and red hair in their coat to remind me of the color of my brother’s horse when we were growing up on the farm. Anyway, I’ve seen red ones, grey ones and even black ones but this is the first time I’ve seen squirrels like this. Has anybody else ever seen roan squirrels?
