Sciurus niger (species) (Sciurus (genus), Sciuridae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Members of a species of gregarious tree squirrel native to the eastern United States excluding New England, north into the southern prairie provinces of Canada, and west to the Dakotas, Colorado, and Texas. Their habitat partially overlaps with the eastern gray squirrel, which is smaller and not as reddish in color as the fox squirrel. Fox squirrels are noted as living fossils, skeletally very similar the oldest known squirrel, Protosciurus, from the late Oligocene and early Miocene epochs.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Leden van een in groepen levende boomeekhoornsoort die inheems is in het oosten van de Verenigde Staten, met uitzondering van New England, tot in de zuidelijke prairieprovincies van Canada en tot in Noord- en Zuid-Dakota, Colorado en Texas. Hun habitat overlapt deels die van de oostelijke grijze eekhoorn, die kleiner en minder rood van kleur is dan de zwarte eekhoorn. Zwarte eekhoorns worden wel aangemerkt als levende fossielen, aangezien hun skelet sterke gelijkenis vertoont met de oudste bekende eekhoorn, Protosciurus, uit het late Oligoceen en het vroege Mioceen.
