Easter grey squirrel

Open the photo gallery

Sciurus carolinensis is native to the eastern and midwestern United States, and to the southerly portions of the eastern provinces of Canada. The native range of the eastern gray squirrel overlaps with that of the fox squirrel (Sciurus niger), with which it is sometimes confused, although the core of the fox squirrel's range is slightly more to the west. The eastern gray squirrel is found from New Brunswick to Manitoba, south to East Texas and Florida The gray squirrel is an invasive species in Britain; it has spread across the country and has largely displaced the native red squirrel. That such displacement might happen in Italy is of concern, and gray squirrels might spread from Italy to other parts of mainland Europe
