There are several squirrel species, but the best known squirrel species in our 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 ten 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 den just before sunset and emerge again just after sunrise. Squirrels, like many other rodents, are very curious and like to 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 somewhat omnivorous, because in addition to plant food such as nuts, bark, spruce and 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 create entire playgrounds in the garden for squirrels and it is wonderful to see how the animals acrobatically climb over everything to get to their beloved acorn!
How do I know if I have squirrels nearby?
Squirrels sleep in trees, which do not necessarily have to be an entire forest. If there are a few 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.
