As someone that never really got to live next to squirrels, it’s hard to believe that some people see them as pests. Hopefully, these pictures of adorable, playful, and intelligent squirrels will be able to change these people’s minds.
There are plenty of reasons to love squirrels. They are much more intelligent than one would think. Some squirrels trick other squirrels and birds, by stashing fake food to lure their rivals away from their real stash.
Squirrels come in an incredible variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. The Bhutan Giant Squirrels, for example, can grow up to 4.2 ft (1.27m) in length, while the tiny African Pygmy Squirrels only measure between 3.9–5.5 in (10–14 cm). Out of all the magnificent species of squirrels, the type that’s most commonly recognized is tree squirrels. Tree squirrels are prevalent mostly in the northern hemisphere and can be found almost anywhere, from city parks to dense forests.

The second most common type of squirrels is ground squirrels. These squirrels build themselves tiny burrows, with some ground squirrel species spending the whole winter inside them hibernating.
The third, and possibly most exciting type of squirrels are, of course, the famous flying squirrels. These squirrels live in bird-like nests or cavities in trees. They don’t actually fly as their name suggests, but rather glide from one branch to another, in constant search of food. Their not picky eaters either. Most flying squirrels will eat anything from nuts to baby birds.
