    Perky little bugger too!

    I saw a squirrel in the Ballarat Botanical Gardens as a wee boy of maybe five yrs.
    For some reson I remember it as red,however there were Greys there apparently,must look this up.
    They never survived Australia and who knows why?

    Another Red.
    We have the rotten Greys here too.
    They carry a Pox from which the Reds have no immunity and eventually will kill off our Reds.

    Some nice pictures of these squirrels, I must take a few myself . We are extremely fortunate here on the Isle of Wight in only having Reds with a zero tolerence attitude being taken by all concerned to keep the Grey ones out. atb.Tim
