In North Carolina biologist have confirmed finding a fox squirrel approximately 26 inches tall and weighing around 3 lbs! that does not include the tail. A trail cam was set up in Robeson County that captured the images of the massive squirrel. I have seen many fox squirrels while hunting in Ohio, and none of them are to feet tall. Even after I exaggerate how big they are for a better story they are still smaller than that. Although I find this hard to believe, the biologist running the trail cams have confirmed that the squirrel is indeed over 2 feet tall!
