Sciuridae sciurus

  • Unlike ground squirrels or chipmunks, tree squirrels have no fur markings, but rather, are notable for their long and bushy tails.
  • Tree squirrels are diurnal, active during daylight hours.  Because they do not hibernate, they are readily seen all year long.
  • Tree squirrels are scatter-hoarders; they collect nuts and seeds, hiding them in scattered places, often burying their cache.
  • By burying seeds and nuts, and by eating potentially destructive insects, tree squirrels play a crucial role in forest regeneration.
