There are several Squirrel species, but the most famous Squirrel species living in the wild is the Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris). These acrobatic little rodents easily jump from tree to tree in search of their favorite food: acorns!
Squirrels live 3 to 7 years in the wild, and up to 10 years in captivity.
When is the best time to feed the outdoor squirrel?
Squirrels are active during the day, actually all day long. They return to their burrows just before sunset and reappear just after sunrise. Squirrels, like many other rodents, are very curious and like to come and see new things.
What do squirrels like?
Acorns are a squirrel's favorite! Although this is not the only thing they eat. Squirrels are actually a bit omnivorous, because in addition to plant foods such as nuts, bark, spruce, pine trees, they also eat insects.
What is the best way to feed squirrels?
It doesn't really matter, but the animals would certainly appreciate a little challenge. In America people sometimes make whole playgrounds in the garden for the squirrels and it's great to see the animals acrobatically climb over everything to get to their beloved acorn!
How do I know if I have squirrels around?
Squirrels sleep in trees, which does not necessarily have to be an entire forest. If there are some trees, especially oak trees, in the area, there is a good chance that there are also squirrels in the area. You can test this by creating a feeding area for the animals.
