things like that can change color just like rabbits that are brown in summer and white in winter, Im sure squirrels are capable of similar things.

It was a colour phase of a grey. Just like you can get black greys as well. I have head of hybrids (fox x grey) but havent seen them to my knowledge, that could be a possiblity also i guess.

I saw a squirrel one year in buck season that had a black head, black paws and a black belly everthing else was grey. It looked like he was wearing a ski mask and gloves. They can come in funky colors i guess
