This is a very healthy Eastern Gray Squirrel - just look at the golden tones in her coat! That is due partly to the fact that her diet is being routinely supplemented with organic almonds from our apartment pantry! We have been feeding her since early spring. At that time she would follow us down the sidewalk, begging. Now she comes right up onto our deck and sometimes even jumps into my lap! My husband named her Rocky when we thought she was a he. Then we noticed that she was lactating, and from that point on, we have called her Raquel.
A little rodent trivia:
Did you know that a squirrel's nest is called a drey?
