Transporting Babies

Updated: Apr 30

Unlike many other animals,

squirrels won't carry their children in the neck skin, or by the head.

No, they will carry them by the strongest,

most powerful muscle in their body, by the large thigh muscles.

They will often move their babies, if a primary drey gets damaged

or otherwise compromised.

They usually have 1 to 3 backup dreys, that they usually use as primary food storage.
