Black Squirrel

There are areas in the U.S. and Canada where melanistic eastern gray squirrels are black and known as black squirrels. I have posted on them before, from squirrels I saw in Charleston, West Virginia. 
I ran across them again in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on the grounds of Trinity College, part of the University of Toronto. 

I have a photo of a black squirrel and also of a black squirrel with a partially white head. The latter was particularly interesting, having almost a phantom of the opera feel to it.

  1. These almost look like skunks rather than squirrels. The one with the white face is really strange.
