A Little Young Squirrel in her Nest - Nature 85

 We have experienced with babies' squirrel as we post previously:

-  The Rainbow Before Evening : The Four Weeks Old Baby Squirrel – Science 17


Image 1- Less than 10 weeks old squirrel

Just recently, we saw a little squirrel in her nest. She looks shy, and hiding in her nest when we approach her.
 
As we mentioned that in our state, Louisiana, squirrels have two breeding seasons that are around mid-December to February, and mid-June to August.

Hence, this little baby could be less than 10 weeks old, because after 10 weeks old, she would leave the nest.

At the age of 10 weeks or more, squirrels will be able to climb down and up the tress, so they be able to forage for foods in nature.

Interestingly, squirrels have their mate for life, however, in case their mate died, then they will find a new one.  A squirrel has average litters about 3 to 4 young.

  6. The first image is nice. Learning that they mate for life but might find a new partner if one passes away is intriguing.

  9. Belas imagens aqui partilhas, amiga.
    Curiosamente, ainda um dia destes vi um esquilo. Coisa, que nunca tinha visto ao vivo. São muito interessantes.
    Deixo os meus votos de uma boa semana.
    Beijinhos!

  12. A friend is a wildlife rehabber (Rochester New York) who specializes in squirrels. It isn't easy to be a squirrel Mom but they are very devoted Mothers. Right now her neighborhood squirrels many of who she raised are coming into her yard full of injuries. The males may travel quite a distance and fight to mate. Many times the female just gets grabbed and has no choice in the matter as to the father of her babies..I am talking about gray squirrels here....Michelle
