Black Squirrel Chase
While my normal fox squirrels are still out there in the forest, their activity may be slowing down just a tiny bit. The black squirrels, on the other hand, seem to be more active as the weather gets colder. I'm not sure why it is, but these black squirrels have come out of the trees in great numbers now, and they're all super powered.
The only real blur I got was because they were just moving so fast. These little ninjas never seem to stop! I have to admit I've seen black squirrels doing this before, but never around here. Their major activity is usually in another place where I never take my camera. I only usually see a few of these squirrels in this forest, but now it's full of them.
Do you think maybe the cold weather could be the reason their fur is black? All the stories I've read say that black squirrels originated in or around Canada, which is obviously north of my country. I have never seen another reasonable explanation for their fur color. I'm sure somebody has one, but for now I don't know what it is.
I'm going to leave it at that today. Maybe you think my speculation sounds good, or maybe you have ideas of your own. I'll be doing some more research to see if I can find out this mystery once and for all. See ya!
