(1) The Eurasian Red Squirrel - a generally benign species of tree squirrel common in Eurasia. Due to the introduction of the Eastern Grey Squirrel from North America, its numbers have been in a sharp decline throughout the British Isles, however, contrary to Anglo-centric assumptions, its population is still strong throughout the rest of Eurasia and its conservation status is "Least Concern", meaning that it is not remotely threatened.
(2) The American Red Squirrel - a species of tree squirrel common throughout the coniferous forests of North America. These little assholes have a tendency of nesting in human-build structures, causing significant damage to them in the process. Like their Eurasian counterparts, these destructive little rodents have a conservation status of "Least Concern".
(3) A natural redhead, whose carpet matches her drapes.
Person 1: The red squirrel is almost extinct!
Person 2: So why does it have a conservation status of least concern and live in strong numbers everywhere from Portugal to Japan?
