The Grey Squirrel is a species of squirrel common to the eastern and Midwestern US. They are predominantly grey with a white underbelly but can also be found in the entirely black variety.
The grey squirrel breeds twice a year, December to February and again May to June. They are known to inhabit forest and wooded ecosystems, as well as parks and backyards in urban environments. They are known to horde food in either smaller temporary stashes, as well as larger more permanent stashes. They are most active in the early morning and late evening and avoid activity in the heat of midday.
