This mammal lives principally in forests around the world except in Australia. There are multiple species, even one that is capable of flying using the skin as improvised wings. The squirrel doesn't eat meat but different kind of nuts, plants, acorns and similar.
The squirrel's home is normally in the trees, in holes or perhaps using an occasional nest. Some species overwinter, passing months without considerable activity. Before it, they are seen hiding aliments for when winter end! Some could surpass 10 years of life.
