Countdown To Baby Season: Acrobatic Squirrel
This young acrobat has a lot to learn. This is the first time outside of his safe attic den and with someone watching, he is frozen with fear.
With the recent onset of male squirrels chasing females throughout the tree tops, baby squirrels will emerge from their dens in just 3 short months. Juvenile squirrels are not born with the fearless ability of performing high wire acts. They need to slowly develop the necessary skills over a few weeks. Baby squirrels clinging to the side of houses and hiding behind chairs result in countless calls to our office by concerned homeowners.
It may be hard to resist but they really don’t need our help. Without our interference they will carry on to become spectacular gymnasts.
