Squirrels

Squirrels (Sciurus) that you see in the web camera online are mammals from the rodent order, the squirrel family. As the live camera shows, an ordinary squirrel has a long body, a very fluffy tail and long pointed ears, sometimes equipped with tassels. The legs of these rodents are tenacious and strong, with strong and sharp claws, which allows them to deftly climb trees. The size of an adult medium squirrel is about 20-31 cm.

Squirrel coat color changes with the season. In winter, the squirrel has a fluffy and dense coat of a bluish-gray color. In summer, the coat is shorter and reddish.

The squirrel family includes a large number of species, here are the most common ones:

Abert’s squirrel;

Common squirrel or veksha.

The squirrels you see online live on all continents except Australia, Madagascar, polar territories, southern South America and northwest Africa.

Spending most of their life in trees, squirrels mainly feed on nuts, acorns, seeds of conifers. They also comsume mushrooms, as well as various grains. In addition to plant food, these dexterous little animals can eat beetles, frogs, lizards and even chicks. In the absence of food, squirrels feed on tree buds, lichens, berries, bark of young shoots, rhizomes and herbaceous plants.

Squirrel mating games in this webcam begin in the spring. The pair is formed for one season, during which the female can produce up to three litters. Squirrel mother equips a separate nest for her offspring. Her pregnancy lasts from 35 to 38 days. The number of cubs ranges from 1 to 10.

The squirrels feed on breast milk for up to 50 days. After 8-10 weeks, they become independent. Babies reach puberty in about a year.

Squirrel lifespan is up to 12 years, but only in captivity. In natural conditions, they live no more than 4 years.

In wild nature, the enemies of squirrels are martens, owls, sables, foxes and cats.
