Black Squirrel Expedition

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 26th, 2008

Black squirrels are a common topic here at Cryptomundo. As fate would have it, I had a recent encounter of the black squirrel kind that set me to thinking about the origins of their pocketed appearances around the continent. Black squirrels in Harvard Square and at Kent State may be linked in more ways than […]

Black Squirrel Research Funded

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 11th, 2008

There is news of a considered and thoughtful educational effort to do “black squirrel” research. Due to a growing population on Long Island, New York, a new “Black Squirrel Headquarters” has sprung up in the Lake Grove neighborhood. Noting the black squirrels have also “colonized suburban Washington D.C.; Reedsburg, Wis., and Princeton, N.J.,” Bill Roe’s […]

2006’s Top Ten White & Black Squirrels’ Hot Spots

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 30th, 2006

Here are two new fun lists for 2006. They represent my top ten choices (each) of white and black squirrels’ hot spots tied to their sightings and appearances.

Ratatosk Predicts Red Sox Victory

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 30th, 2007

I’ve spent some time here discussing melanistic or black squirrels. It seems only logical, perhaps even nuts, to not ignore the significant publishing of an article in today’s New York Times regarding some squirrel lore that can be seen to unfold in the coming weeks. What is being set up is a testable experiment. If […]

No, it’s not a new member of the Flight of the Conchords group, which already include performers with the pseudonyms of the Hiphopopotamus and the Rhymenoceros. No, the Kangahippomouse is the thing above. Mark Frauenfelder has blogged an entry entitled “Mystery creature photographed in Seattle — a kangahippomouse?” over at Boing Boing. A reader at […]
