They prefer to live in forests where coniferous trees are high, but even in deciduous forests and parks, they feel comfortable. They love to climb and play on the trees. Even before it gets light, they are wide awake. Squirrels eat seeds, buds, berries, flowers, insects, snails, acorns and nuts. Squirrels keep a reserve of nuts and acorns for the winter. Unfortunately, they don’t mark this reserve, so they have to look for it until they find it again.
