From the eastern United States and southeastern Canada; introduced into Britain, Ireland, western North America, Italy, and South Africa.Medium sized tree squirrel with no sexual dimorphism in size or coloration. The dorsal surface ranges from grizzled dark to pale grey and may have cinnamon tones. The ears are pale grey to white and its tail is white to pale grey. Underparts are grey to buff. Melanism is common in the northern portions of the range and albinism is rare in all areas.I have never seen a black one but have seen an albino in Cape Town.
