Types of Squirrels   

1     When we think of squirrels, an image of a bushy-tailed animal running up and down a tree often comes to our minds. This picture only fits one of the three types of squirrels.
 
2     Scientists divide the more than 200 species of squirrels into three groups. There are tree squirrels, flying squirrels, and ground squirrels. Tree squirrels, such as the gray squirrel, the red squirrel, and the eastern fox squirrel, are superb climbers. Known for their agility, tree squirrels are top-ranked gymnasts. And, to watch them perform, we simply need to put up a bird feeder in our yard. Tempted by the food inside the bird feeder, tree squirrels are willing to go through all sorts of hurdles. They may jump from one tree to another or walk up, down, or across a thin, suspended wire.
