The purpose of the website is to present photographs, and current,
information about members of the family sciuridae (the squirrels).
large volume squirrel research papers, books, websites, and
photographs already exsist, and I'm grateful to all those who have made
these avaliable. By providing references to the works I've used
to prepare the image captions, I hope to help visitors find additional
information, since this site cannot hope to describe all the details of
the hundreds of squirrel experiments and observations made by
naturalists around the world.
Note: Each species
has its own section. When the word "squirrel" is used in that
section, "squirrel" means only members of that species. In the
section for the fox squirrel, for example, the word "squirrels" refers
to fox squirrels only, unless otherwise noted.
If you would like to use photographs from this website or have
photographs you'd like me to add to the website, especially of animals
I don't yet have covered, please contact me.
