Mammals Revealed - Discovery and Documentation of Secretive Creatures


Eastern & Tropical Tree Squirrels

Tree squirrels are familiar to most Americans and are an excellent example of how one species can have different color morphs. The red-bellied squirrel is a Mexican species introduced to the Florida Keys, where it persists in small numbers. Todd Zalewski drew these squirrels using reference materials that include museum specimens, photographs, video, and observations at his own birdfeeder.
