Nursing mummys little break - Red Squirrel . Sciurus vulgaris by Daniela Hartl-Heisan
  Nursing mummys little break  (2008)
Subject: Red Squirrel . Sciurus vulgaris
Dimensions (inches): 8 x 8
Medium: Watercolor & Goldleaf on wooden panel
Description: In Great Britain and Ireland, numbers have decreased drastically in recent years, in part due to the introduction of the eastern grey squirrel. The red squirrel is protected in most of Europe, as it is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN red list. In some areas it is abundant and is hunted for its fur. Although not thought to be under any threat worldwide, the red squirrel has drastically reduced in number in the United Kingdom. Fewer than 140,000 individuals are thought to be left, approximately 85% of which are in Scotland. This population decrease is often ascribed to the introduction of the eastern grey squirrel from North America, but the loss and fragmentation of its native woodland habitat has also played a major role.
