Squirrel Trivia:

 

 

 

  • Comprised of approximately 270 species of rodents whose common name derives from the Greek skiouros, meaning “shade tail.”
  • Fossil records date tree squirrels back to Late Eocene Epoch (41.3 million to 33.7 million years ago) in North America.
  • Variation in body size considerable. Largest are Oriental giant squirrels native to tropical forests of Southeast Asia, weighing 3-7 lbs. and measuring up to 18” in length. African pygmy squirrels of West African tropical forests are smallest, measuring 2.5-3” in length.
  • Inhabit all parts of the world except Australia.
  • Except for ground squirrels, they live mainly in trees.
  • Omnivorous, eating nuts, seeds, cones, fruits, fungi, green vegetation, insects, larvae, eggs, small birds, mammals, frogs, and carrion.
  • Most active in late winter during start of mating season. Males chase females and chase off other suitors through trees at top speed, performing breathtaking acrobatics.
  • Period of gestation varies from 33 days in smaller species up to 60 days for larger species. Babies born in early spring. Average litter consists of four. This varies with climate and location. A second litter can occur in mid summer if there is adequate food supply.
  • A baby weighs 1oz. at birth and is about 1” long. It does not have hair or teeth and is virtually blind for first 6-8 weeks.
  • An adult normally lives alone but in severe cold will share its nest to conserve body heat. Once the temperature rises, the guests will be on their way.
  • During winter storms or severe cold, may not leave nest for days. But tree squirrels do not hibernate.
  • Eyes are located high and on each side of head. This allows a wide field of vision without turning their head.
  • Erratic path while crossing a street is an attempt to confuse the oncoming vehicle.
  • Male tree squirrels take twice as long as females to groom. They are cleanest animal in rodent family.
  • Teeth grow continuously. Incisors grow 6” per year but stay short due constant wear.
  • Never hold food between your fingers. Chances are very good you will be bitten. A squirrel's eyes are always looking for predators and they rarely focus on what they are eating.
