This little guy clearly has been spoiled by visitors to Cherry Creek State Park.

While he was cute as heck, we managed to resist its charms and it soon moved on to another group.
The Fox Squirrel is the largest tree squirrel native to North America. It is quite common here in the Denver area where it has proven to be very adaptable to urban environments.
