I believe that is a fox squirrel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_SquirrelMostly friend, my mini dachshunds think FOE.
You are right, Connie! Thanks for the correction!! Guess I'd better stick to plant ID, eh?
Our local squirrels sure like to eat prickly pear fruit and temporarily splash their maroon colors all over our tan wall and patio! Kind of a nice color, so I say "friend".
Your squirrel report gave me a good laugh - I could just see those little paw prints everywhere!
These little buggers are just "tree rats" - nothing more - nothing less. They can cause damage in many different ways around the home. In my mind they have no redeeming value. Any they multiply like rabbits...
I agree about the potential for damage and over-population! I find them amusing, but don't encourage them with specialty feed, etc.
