The Douglas squirrel is another pine squirrel found in the Pacific coast of the United States and the Southwestern coast of British Columbia.

The Douglas squirrel is about 33 cm in length and weighs approximately 150 to 300 grams.

This species was called “Piiiiiiloooet” by the Native Americans of Kings River because of its characteristic alarm call. The eyes of the Douglas squirrel have white rings around them.
