    I noticed we have some black squirrels in our woods. Are these rare?

    Black squirrels are fairly common in many areas. They typically are just a species of squirrel like gray or fox with more melanin in there skin which is called melanism. I've seen quite a few in some areas I've been, but don't have any in my neighborhood. It really just depends on where you live because it's genetic.
    Hope this will help.
