TOPIC:  Rodent Squirrels Ö

Posted:  1/21/2016, 4:56 a.m. ET


Us dawgs really do not care for squirrels.  Iíve met some cats who like squirrels, but I think thatís only because theyíre from the same species of rodent.  The squirrels in our neighborhood love stealing our acorns, so in order to track the evidence, I spent the fall plating each of our acorns gold.  The squirrels donít even notice, because besides being stupid they are also colorblind.  If you see a stupid squirrel shucking a golden acorn, invite him over and have him for dinner.

Squirrels ...


Squirrels come in different sizes.  The smallest being as tiny as 3 inches, with the biggest going up to 30 inches.


The size of the brain of a squirrel is about the size of a walnut.


Squirrels are mostly omnivores.  They eat nuts, fruits, seeds, buds, flowers, and even barks of trees.  Another delicacy for them is tree sap.


Squirrels do not hibernate.  They just tend to stay inside their nest during the winters, and save their energy.


The lifespan of a squirrel is usually 10 to 12 years, but most die young as they have a lot of predators that hunt for them.  Predators include hawks, foxes, opossums, wildcats, owls and pesky humans.
