are usually born in the early spring. The average litter
consists of four. This varies with climate and location.
A second litter can occur in mid summer, if there is an
adequate food supply. A baby squirrel weighs approximately
one ounce at birth, and is about one inch long. They do
not have hair or teeth, and are virtually blind for the
first six to eight weeks.
Gray squirrels come in many colors. Shades of gray are
the most common followed by shades of brown. There are
also pure white and pure black squirrels, but both are
variations of the gray squirrel.
