Generally, there is no difference between males and females with respect to size or coloration.
Gray squirrels have two breeding seasons per year and most breeding occurs in December - February and May - June. Females can have two litters per year, one from each breeding season. Average litter sizes range from 2 - 3 individuals. The winter litter is generally smaller than the summer litter. Both sexes remain reproductively active throughout their lives.
