I took a walk at the Montreal Botanical Garden yesterday afternoon and I was really surprised to see this very unusual squirel.

Squirrels are cool, but I'm always a bit confused where they fit. Are they native in Quebec?
The first time I saw a squirrel was in India: action-packed stripey buggers.
Next, Aus: suit-and-tie grey ones from Britain I suppose.
Scotland had a few red ones, rarer than the other native gingers.

The Eastern Gray squirrel is native to Eastern N.A. and despite the name, it can also be black and apparently white as well!
 
He does not suffer fools gladly. But this tiny ad does:
