|The black squirrel is a melanistic subgroup of the Eastern gray squirrel. They are common in the Midwestern U.S., Eastern Canada and parts of the Northeastern U.S. and the U.K. Melanism is the opposite of albinism.|
We don't see these squirrels very often in Mexico.
The one shown here was photographed in Aguascalientes.

An attractive image of this beautiful black squirrel in it's natural habitat. I only wish he would have faced you and not have been so camera shy.
We have many black squirrels here in Ohio, but yours seems to have a much longer tail the ours. Focus is sharp, giving us a great look at it's sleek and shiny coal black fur. Exposure is just right and colors are true and natural. Thank you for sharing a bit of the wildlife from your region of the globe.
