The western grey squirrel (Sciurus griseus) is an arboreal rodent found along the western coast of the United States and Canada. In some places, this species has also been known as the silver-grey squirrel, the California grey squirrel, the Oregon grey squirrel, the Columbian grey squirrel and the banner-tail. There are three geographical subspecies: Sciurus griseus griseus (central Washington to the western Sierra Nevada in central California); S. g. nigripes (from south of San Francisco Bay to San Luis Obispo County, California; and S. g. anthonyi, which ranges from San Luis Obispo to northern Baja California).
