Arguably the largest squirrel in Orlando was caught on camera last weekend

A local golfer captured footage of what has to be the biggest squirrel in the metro Orlando area.  

I mean, come on. Just look at that squirrel. It is the king of all squirrels. 
The video, which was upload last Sunday, April 10, was shot at the Rio Pinar Country Club in Orlando and shows this mighty rodent scurrying around and approaching the cameraman with little to no hesitation, basically not caring at all about us tiny humans. 

What you have here is a fox squirrel, possibly a mangrove fox squirrel, which, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, can grow up to lengths of 28 inches and are found throughout Florida. 

Fox squirrels are protected on both state and federal levels and the FWC is currently tracking them. So, if you see one you can help out by reporting it here
