The Squirrel is typically brown in color but some of them are reddish. They have a long thin body with small ears. They have a bushy tail that is usually upright. The Squirrel tends to store food in trees so that it can get through the long winter months. In some areas they are timid enough to go up to people that offer them nuts.
