Squirrels are in abundance around our house these days. I must admit I am partial to the white squirrels rather than the grey fox squirrels but their antics are always amusing. They have a determination when it comes to bird feeders and I have to admit I have left feeders empty more times than not lately due to them cleaning them out.
This type of squirrel is okay with me. Fake squirrels on a teapot do not frustrate me. These guys are pretty cute, aren’t they?
How about a few squirrel facts today?
Squirrels can find their food burned beneath a foot of snow.
Newborn squirrels are an inch long.
A squirrel’s front teeth never stop growing.
Squirrels may lose 25% of their buried food to thieves such as other squirrels or birds.
They run zigzag like to avoid predators.
And just like me – they get bulky to stay warm in the winter.
Your squirrel facts for the day brought to you by the internet. Why not go enjoy a cup of tea now – you deserve it.

Squirrils can be pesky but are cute. We have black ones here and Dot likes to chase them. Another sweet teapot!!
Adorable. And thanks for the squirrel facts. I know they are mostly a nuisance but I love watching them play and run up and down the trees around our house. They love to tease Audrey when we are out on walks and it’s pretty funny. I have some cute photos of them holding the nuts that fall from the trees and nibbling on those.
Squirrels can be annoying, but I enjoy watching them. Of course, it’s easy for me to say that since we rarely see a squirrel in our yard.
Well, I just learned a whole lot more about squirrels. I always wonder how they manage to jump from branch to branch, etc. without losing their footing and falling.
That is a perfect teapot for you, Beth Ann. Interesting facts I did not know. Thanks for sharing.
White squirrels I’d like to see. We used to have red squirrels; they’ve been edged out by gray, as in most places. In Maryland there were the famous black ones. I’ve never seen a white squirrel though.
