I saw a mammal that looked like a large squirrel. I haven't seen anything quite like it. Can you help me identify it?
- Squirrel-like, "hunched over" posture.
- It was too large to be an eastern squirrel—approximately 2.5 feet, from nose to tail.
- It had a fluffy tail like an eastern squirrel, not short and rat-like like a ferret.
- Black face with white nose, body was chestnut-brown.
- I saw this on the ground, not in a tree.
- I saw it in a pine forest in east-central Alabama.
- At one point, it sat up on its hind legs.
