Squirrel Species

There are more than 280+ species of squirrels in the world. These include tree, ground, and flying squirrels alike. At All-Taxidermy, we create or sell various species of squirrel taxidermy mounts, ranging from common gray or red squirrels native to North America, to the Prevost’s squirrel, native to Sumatra and Borneo in Asia.

Gray Squirrel Taxidermy

There are four major subspecies of gray squirrels that you’ll find in North America: the eastern, western, Arizona, and Mexican gray squirrel. As their name implies, the typical fur coloration for the gray squirrel is gray, usually with a white underside, however, some squirrels can be brown, or leucistic (white) or melanistic (black). In fact, you’re likely to find black or white squirrel taxidermy on our website. The eastern gray squirrel is native to the eastern states of the United States, having a similar distribution as the fox squirrel. They are a highly adaptable species, and are considered to be invasive in some parts of the world.

The eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) is one of North America’s most well-recognized mammals. If you live in Eastern or Central United States, you are likely to see these rodents daily, scampering across your lawn and looking for seeds, walnuts, acorns, hazelnuts, tree bark, buds, flowers, and berries for food. The similar western gray squirrel’s range does not cross over with its eastern cousin – it lives in Washington, Oregon, California, and the northern part of Mexico. Meanwhile, the Arizona gray squirrel is a tree squirrel that’s native to a small portion of Arizona and northern Mexico. Lastly, the Mexican gray squirrel, also known as the red-bellied squirrel, lives in Guatemala and eastern and southern Mexico.

Red Squirrel Taxidermy

The red squirrel is a Eurasian squirrel that’s native to most of Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia. The Eurasian red squirrel is characterized by a distinctive red or dark/black coloration and ear tufts. They prefer the Scots and Siberian pine and Norway spruce of the boreal and coniferous woods of Europe and Siberia.

There’s also the American red squirrel, which is significantly smaller than their gray squirrel cousins. They are widely distributed across Alaska, Canada, and the Rocky Mountain and Eastern parts of the United States.

Fox Squirrel Taxidermy

Looking for fox squirrel taxidermy? Also known as the Eastern fox squirrel, or the Bryant’s fox squirrel, it’s North America’s largest species of squirrel. The squirrel’s upper body is typically a brownish-gray or brownish-yellow with a distinctive orange/red underside. As such, the fox squirrel is sometimes mistaken for the red or gray squirrel due to its similar coloration.

The fox squirrel’s natural range covers most of the eastern part of North America. This includes the southern prairie provinces of Canada, to the Dakotas, Colorado, and Texas, to most southern, Midwest, and eastern states in the U.S. The fox squirrel feeds on tree buds, flowers, insects, bird eggs, maple tree seeds, berries, oak acorns, and fruits and nuts from various trees.

Abert’s Squirrel Taxidermy

The Abert’s squirrel has a range that extends from the southern Rocky Mountains down into the northern Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico. Also known as the tassel-eared squirrel, it’s a tree squirrel that’s characterized by its tasseled ears and gray and white fur. Usually, the squirrel also has a rusty or reddish stripe along its back, but some subspecies won’t have this stripe at all.

The Abert’s squirrel is prevalent in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado. They favor Ponderosa pine trees and a large part of their diet are the tree’s pine cones. Browse our Abert’s squirrel taxidermy mounts online for beautiful mounts depicting this unique, Southwestern squirrel!

Kaibab Squirrel Taxidermy

The Kaibab squirrel, considered a subspecies of the Abert’s squirrel, is a tassel-eared squirrel that lives in only one place in the world – the Kaibab Plateau in Southwest United States – an area of only 20 by 40 miles. In fact, the Kaibab squirrel only dwells in the ponderosa pine forests of the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park and the northern portion of Kaibab National Forest.

These squirrels have brown or gray fur, tufted ears, a black or gray belly, and a fluffy white tail. They live only in ponderosa pine forests, building their nests from the trees’ twigs and pine needles.

Prevost Squirrel Taxidermy

Another unique squirrel taxidermy display you may find on our website is the Prevost’s squirrel. Otherwise known as the Asian tri-colored squirrel, this squirrel has distinctive black, white, and reddish-brown fur. Meanwhile, the squirrel’s subspecies is fully black and reddish/orange with no white.

The Prevost squirrel can be found in the forests of the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Borneo, and other small islands. It feeds primarily on fruits, nuts, seeds, buds, flowers, bird eggs, and insects.

Squirrel Taxidermy FAQs

How to taxidermy a squirrel?

Taxidermy is a complex process that requires knowledge, personal experience, and tools. The process for a squirrel involves: skinning the squirrel, which requires making precise incisions and carefully removing the skin/fur. Once removed, you should treat it using a process called tanning to preserve the skin and prevent from decay. Next, use a form that matches the dimensions and pose of the squirrel. Once the skin is fitted, sew the incisions and perform the necessary grooming, touch ups, and add the eyes. Finally, you’ll mount the squirrel on a base for display.

How much does it cost to taxidermy a squirrel?

The cost of having a squirrel prepared and made into a taxidermy mount can vary greatly based on a number of factors. These include the pose of the animal, the number of squirrels, whether you want to add custom habitat, or other unique designs (Novelty & Oddity poses). We always recommend you get quotes from a trusted local taxidermist for the most accurate current pricing. Check out our price list here for more details.

How to skin a squirrel for taxidermy?

To start with skinning a squirrel, you will make a circular cut around the body, being careful not to cut too deep and damage the organs. You should make this cut at the midsection or near the back legs. Now, make a cut from the circular cut down each of the rear legs. Next, carefully peel the skin away from the body, and be very careful when you reach the area around the face, ears, and legs for best taxidermy results. Once removed, you can start the tanning process. More information here about skinning a squirrel.
