Remember the famous Chip 'N' Dale animation series of Disney? The duo has been a big hit with kids and grown ups alike. I still love to watch this series whenever it comes on the T.V. Squirrels are among the most beautiful animals on the Earth. With their cute little eyes, long bushy tail, and swift movements, they never fail to attract and amuse people.
Use of the afternoon heat provides them great relief during the colder months. Those squirrels who cannot find enough space in tree holes or cavities, sneak their way into the attics of local homes. There they are not just safe from cold, but are also protected from natural enemies, like hawks, cats, and even snakes.
Squirrels can live up to 10 or 12 years in the wild. They are considered adults, when they turn 6-year old. Their brain is the size of a walnut.
