    Default Is she melanated?

    So Sisuís fur development is behind due to her having to heal out so much stuff and I thought she was a Fox, but her fur doesnít look like the pictures of baby Fox squirrels. Itís coming in quite dark with tan only on her eyelids and her snoot, and by her ears. Her paws donít have fuzz yet, and her tail had the slightest hint of cinnamon at the end but the rest is coming in super dark. Is she melanated, or is her fur just wonky because sheís behind? (Not that it matters, more curiosity)

    She was 4 weeks yesterday and is 54 grams.

    I do believe she's a grey squirrel, her coloring is perfect.

    Oh I have no doubt 😂

    She was so insistent on food (while I was letting it warm up) that she tried to climb up my partnerís nose rooting around and it was hilarious 😂
