XINTEGB 31 Attenborough Research Paper: Eastern Fox Squirrel The Eastern Fox Squirrel is native to the eastern United States, but due to humans, they are now also found in the Western United States. The Eastern Fox Squirrel is the largest species of tree squirrel’s found in and native to North America. They are native to Canada, Colorado, N/S Dakota, New England, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. They have been introduced by humans to Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, Washington, and even New Mexico. This species thrives amongst oak, hickory, pine, and walnut trees. They are most commonly found in open forests. These fox squirrels have two different types of shelters; leaf nests and tree dens. Leaf nests can be used year-round, but tree dens are especially preferred during winter and while raising young. Eastern fox squirrels are generalists in diet and can eat a varying amount of foods including seeds, acorns, tree nuts, insects, roots, and tree oak.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
