Red Squirrel - Tamiasciurus hudsonicus Red squirrels store conifer cones in middens, or piles, instead of burying them like their larger cousins do. The middens made by red squirrels can be up to 30 feet across and 1.5 feet deep! #wildohio #ohiomammals

The Squirrel Whisky, frisky, Hippity hop; Up he goes To the tree top! Whirly, twirly, Round and round, Down he scampers To the ground. Furly, curly What a tail! Tall as a feather Broad as a sail! Where's his supper? In the shell, Snappity, crackity, Out it fell.
