Creature Feature: Squirrel

Creature Features: Squirrels

During breaks of wet weather over the weekend, we took off to our local dog park to get out some of that rainy day energy. And, while cruising the perimeter, North got a whiff of a furry yet familiar little creature: a squirrel!

Although North couldn't climb up the tree after the quick moving mammal, it made me realize how little I know about the squirrel! So after some research, I thought I'd test your knowledge on them as well!

5/6. The squirrels in our trees near our home chatter when they sense danger, it doesn't sound like whistles.

I am a Sciuridae fanatic. Have been since I was a little girl and saw my first squirrel and chased it while my mom screamed "DO NOT TOUCH THAT - YOU'LL GET THE PLAGUE!" I was hooked on Sciuridae from there on, I think they are one of the great creatures. The other being skunks. Love them both.
