W e had a visitor at The Journal last week who inquired about the strange-looking squirrels he spotted on a Sebring golf course. For years my friends called them “money squirrels.” After a little research, I found an article on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website. My friends were wrong. The squirrel is called a Fox Squirrel: Sciurus Niger.

When we played golf at Harder Hall Golf Club or Sebring Municipal Course we encountered these strange-looking squirrels. They are larger than average squirrels and have a black face and feet. The hind quarters are larger than other squirrels and the tail looks like a fox. They also run like a fox and spend most of their time on the ground.
