Seen any pink fox squirrels lately?

No. But I did get an ORANGE one with very sparce black hair mixed in. Not patched. You could only see the black upon close inspection.

I was going to get it mounted until I found out how much it cost. I just kept the tail.

I remember seeing the article in National Geographic a while back about flying squirrels fluorescing pink. Fox squirrels don't, nor gray squirrels, nor red squirrels, nor chipmunks. That was very sloppy reporting on the part of the outlet that ran it.

All I see on my cameras are their eyes at my feeders at night. Actually caught one in midair from a tree to the feeder...wasn’t pink though.
And my fox squirrels would even take offense to this reporting!

You have to have UV light. :)
