With over 200 different species, squirrels are one of the most familiar rodents located all over the world. They belong to the same family as prairie dogs, chipmunks, and marmots. The most commonly recognized species is likely the tree squirrel, which makes it’s home in the trees. However, ground squirrels are also common, living in burrow or tunnels.
While it varies slightly between species, squirrel’s diets typically consist of nuts, leaves, roots, seeds, berries, and other plants. Some squirrels eat small insects and even baby birds. However, being fairly low on the food chain themselves, squirrels must always be vigilant to protect themselves from predators.
