Squirrels love to come visit your garden, especially if you install a nice feeder for them. They are wonderful to see! They are not easy to keep as pets. They need, for example, special accommodation. Many sorts of squirrels nest, namely, in hollow trees, caverns or they build a nest out of branches. Chipmunks prefer living in a burrow. Just like a marmot, that’s the chipmunk. The health and feeding of squirrels demands specific attention. Squirrels eat relatively a lot! They consume daily from 5 – 15% of their body weight. Squirrels are all-eaters, i.e. omnivores. The most is vegetable: nuts, seeds, buds and twigs. Besides this staple food, they like to eat birds eggs and insects.
