About Squirrel: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior - Squirrels (Family: Sciuridae) are well-familiar rodents found almost everywhere around the world. They are mainly of three types such as ground squirrels, tree squirrels, and flying squirrels. So far, over two hundred different species of squirrels have been detected. Name of each category of a squirrel indicates which characteristics it has as well as which type it belongs to. For instance, African pygmy is a kind of squirrel which grows to 7cm up to 13cm. On the other hand, giant squirrel in India is considered as the largest squirrel of the world having up to 1m of length and weighing up to 1.8 Kg. In order to eat nuts and break substances, squirrels make use of their four front strong teeth that consistently grow throughout their entire lives.
A wooden tract is tree squirrel's most chosen place to live in. Ground squirrels most often dig burrows to meet their living purpose. Again, some squirrels start hibernating during the winter to keep pace with the temperature loss. Flying squirrels prefer tree holes as their dwelling place and make use of their muscle membrane while gliding on the air.
Squirrels are fond of nuts as well as plants and meats. A squirrel needs one pound of foods every week and usually eats seeds, fungi, and fruits as well. However, Squirrels are considered as omnivores because of their attention to eating everything including insects, eggs, caterpillars, micro animals, and young snakes. They are aware of the winter food-scarcity and opt for storing foods in other months.
Squirrels' behaviors are not friendly to human at all. They love to enter a house and create habitat in a soffit or an attic. They tend to find a little opening and chew a bigger hole to have access to the building and fetch nesting materials to their living place. Squirrels are noisy when they scurry around and catch nuts. They are restless in having access to the fireplace and frequently fall down the flue of chimney. Squirrels can chew into even commercial apartments. By means of transporting nesting materials into the building and chewing on the power lines they cause a fire hazard now and then. Squirrels most often urine in the attic and drops pieces of useful materials here and there. Their droppings smell awkward initiating an ultimate biohazard as well as invite other squirrels to visit the attic. Squirrels can perceive a huge amount of surroundings due to having their eyes high on their head. Squirrels' presence can be easily detected by human, since they make a lot of noises and remain busy all the while.
