"Limb Rat" (AKA Squirrel). Gainesville, Florida. 2013.
I don't know what happened to this little guy--mange, near miss by a hawk--but they sure aren't as cute without fur on their tails!
(I usually think squirrels are pretty cute and fun, despite their tendency to eat bird food and nest in attics. But this one looked particularly "ratty" without any fur on its tail. No worries about the cold--we live in Florida and it's a balmy 75 today!)
