CUTEST TINY RED SQUIRREL

Not only do I think this is the most adorable squirrel I’ve ever seen, but he (she?) is probably the tiniest. He must be a baby because he wasn’t even as big as a chipmunk and they are pretty small. His colors are unique. Clearly a red squirrel — the white ring around his eye is a giveaway as his the white tummy and the tight curl of his tail, but he has an almost charcoal grey head. And a black stripe in his tail. I’ve never seen a squirrel that looks quite like this little fellow. He’s definitely an original!

  1. What a gorgeous baby. I do envy you squirrels although possums are pretty cute too.

    • He was back again this morning. He is STILL tiny. I’m not sure he’s going to ever get to full size, but he has the same colors including that black striped tail!

      Your possums are cuter than ours because your are bushy and our have just a long rat-tail.

    • He is a cutie. He came back this morning and he is still \tiny. I’m not sure he’ll get much bigger. He should be bigger by now. There seem to be two kinds of red squirrels — a really tiny one and one that’s about 35% bigger. ALL the red ones are much smaller than the gray squirrels. Tough but tiny.

  2. Nothing cuter than the side view of a baby squirrel. The dogs keep them out of our back yard and the cats out of the front yard, but I can peer over my back wall and see them down below in the spare lot…I’ve never seen a baby one here, though.

    • This one was — even for really cute baby squirrels — was a super duper cute baby squirrel and so very tiny! He could easily have sat in the palm of my hand with plenty of room left over.
