2-foot-tall squirrel

North Carolinians have come to expect rattlesnakes, bears, alligators and possibly even Bigfoot in wooded areas, but state wildlife officials posted images this month of a lesser known oddity that is just as startling: A 2-foot-tall squirrel.
The photos were captured by camera traps in Robeson County, and reaction on Facebook can be summed up by commenter Ruth Bergstein of Greensboro: “He’s huge!”
State officials identified the animal as a fox squirrel that was likely 26 inches tall (not counting its tail) and weighed nearly 3 pounds.
