Did you know there are more than 200 squirrel species worldwide? Due to their commonplace nature, squirrels are under-appreciated, but there’s a lot more to them than you might think.
Did you know squirrels sometimes dig “decoy” holes to throw off anyone who might have observed them burying their food? Or that they have been known to chew up the skin of a rattlesnake in order to cover themselves with its scent and evade detection by other snakes? How about the fact that squirrels have been responsible for hundreds of power outages in the U.S.? Come develop a new admiration for these critters at L. C. Bates Museum.
