I have never seen a black squirrel. In fact, I didn’t even know that they existed. I saw one in a picture I used in yesterday’s post.
Live and learn.
Black squirrels are gray squirrels. The only difference between a black squirrel and a gray squirrel is that the black one is black. I did read that black squirrels seem a bit more aggressive than gray squirrels. I doubt this. Gray squirrels are aggressive. If someone isn’t used to gray squirrels, then black squirrels would seem feisty. Red squirrels are less so.
As far as squirrels go, in general, don’t you be bothering them.

The pictures from Wikimedia Commons, I will label as WC.
