A Conservation Success Story!

Twice the size of the common gray squirrel, the Delmarva Peninsula fox squirrel may grow to 30 inches—with half of that as the tail—and weigh up to 3 pounds. Historically, the fox squirrel lived in the peninsula occupied by portions of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia and bordered by the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware River, Delaware Bay, and Atlantic Ocean.
