Painting of Cypress fox squirrel (Sciurus niger), HABITAT AND DISTRIBUTION: This subspecies is endemic to southwestern Florida, but the species is widespread in eastern and central North America. It occurs in the Immokalee Rise, Big Cypress Swamp, and Devil's Garden area in Collier County. Big Cypress fox squirrels have been reported in cypress swamp, pine flatwood, tropical hammock, hardwood hammock, mangrove swamp, and suburban habitats including golf courses, and residential areas in native vegetation. Big Cypress fox squirrel densities appear to be quite low, and on this basis the subspecies can be considered inherently rare. Foraging is the most frequent activity. Slash pine seems to be a primary food source for Big Cypress fox squirrels. Individuals have been observed feeding on microstrobili (male cones) in winter, while seeds from magastrobili (female cones) form the bulk of the diet during the summer rainy season. Mega- and microstrobili from cypress are consumed in autumn and early winter, respectively. Cabbage palm fruits, bromeliad buds, and acorns also are important food items.
