A delmarva fox squirrel is a pretty big squirrel. its grey, has a fluffy tail, and a white stomach. They usually reside in the cavities of trees. FOx squirrels are the largest squirrels in North America 4 biotic factors in a Delmarva fox squirrel's habitat
Trees, they use them for moving around and living in
Acorns, so they can eat
nuts, so they can eat
Marshland, so its easy to get around and so there's also water around too. WHAT A FOX... Squirrel Squirrels use trees as a main source to get around, but the trees aren't affected. This is an example of Commensalism By Helnsarah Penda

Light skys, so they can see where theyre going and be aware of predators
streams, for drinking water
temperature, there fur can protect them from most tempuratures and during the winter they hibernate

Parasitism- Where one organism benefits and the other organism is harmed
Commensalism- Where one organism benefits and the other organism isnt bothered A squirrel eats acorns. This is an example of parasitism because the squirrel benefits while the acorn is being harmed by being eaten. Squirrels live in the cavities of trees. This is a commensalism relationship because only the squirrel benefits while the tree isn't harmed A fox eats squirrels. This is an example parasitism because the fox benefits and the squirrel is harmed in the process Predation - When one organism hunts another - when there's not enough of an organism so other organisms have to compete to survive Competition Examples of predation - A fox eats a delmarva fox squirrel - A hawk eats a delmarva fox squirrel Examples of Competition - foxes and hawks compete to eat squirrels, especially since the Delmarva fox squirrels are endangered - Squirrels compete with there own kind for acorns if there's a limited supply. How Humans impact the habitat Humans chop down trees where squirrels live
When humans use lawn mowers or grass shredders they can accidentally hit a squirrel
When humans chop down oak trees it could be hard for squirrels to find nuts References
