Fun Squirrel Facts for Kids
The Squirrels are pretty widespread too because their kin can be seen all over the trees, parks and woodlands across the globe—Australia, Asia and the Europe. It can be noted that when you give a certain type of squirrel tree bark for him to chew, the little guy would just flatly ignore it. Squirrels will typically gather and save a lot of their food all year round but this is definitely true when it comes to the autumn time. When you see them collecting all their nuts just before winter it is because they are getting ready for winter and they want to make sure that they have enough food to last them. After they have buried all of their food and when winter comes and goes, the squirrel will wake up out of hibernation and go look for the food they buried! Did you know that their name came was credited from the old Greek word Skiouros? Now that's a cool squirrel fact!
I see them all of the time all over the place. All they do is bury nuts and steal birdseed, right? Well, there is a lot more to these furry mammals than meets the eye. They belong to the Sciuridae family, and are native to every continent, with the exception of Antarctica and Australia. This makes them great for chewing and gnawing. These help them to see where they are going when climbing trees and escaping from other animals who might attack them predators.
