This warning noise not only helps the squirrel to survive, but warns the other animals of the forest of impending danger. Their enemies include coyotes, red foxes, lynx, northern goshawk, great horned owls and martens. They are fast climbers and can get away from their enemies quickly by escaping up trees. A squirrel's main adaptation for survival is their sense of smell. They can smell nuts that are covered by over 1 metre of snow and then they can dig through that snow to find their hidden food. They also like to eat insects, tree buds, pine and spruce cones, fungi, berries and fruit. They do not hibernate, but often stay in their den in trees during very cold days. Their thickened fur helps them to stay warm when they are looking for food during the winter months. cgfgbf Habitat Description Home Tracks Red squirrels are rodents. Red squirrels
are dark red on their back and white
on their stomach. In the summer their coat becomes darker. Their body is normally
20 cm long and their tail is 18 cm long.
Red squirrel paw prints have 4
toes on the front paws and 5 toes
on their hind legs. Squirrels prints are normally found between trees
and near holes where cones might be buried. If you see an almost diamond shaped print on the ground, it may be a squirrel's footprint. Squirrels live in dens found in the holes of trees. Before winter comes, they line their nest with shredded bark and other soft warm material to help to keep them warm during winter. Some may use underground shelters made inside piles of cones and needles from coniferous trees. Biotic Factors Plants Animals red maple
