  1. By Trevor Squirrels

  2. 1 Fill a tall bucket 1/4 of the way up with water. The water can be any temperature, just make sure it is deep enough for the squirrel to drown/not be able to touch the bottom and shallow enough so it cannot jump out. 2 Smear the peanut butter on the toilet paper roll. Use your hand to get it on the whole thing. 3 Put the toilet paper roll with the peanut butter on a stick, make sure the squirrel can get to it, and make sure that the stick is long enough to reach across the bucket 4 Put the stick across the bucket, but be sure to check that it won't roll off the bucket easily. You might fix it on with loops of wire so that the paper can suddenly rollover. The paper will rollover and flip the squirrel into the bucket. 5 Bam! In a couple of days, you will have your squirrel! If not, keep trying, practice makes perfect!!! How to catch squirrels!!!!!

  3. Squirrels are primarily vegetarians, living on seeds, nuts, fruits, fungi, lichens, buds, mushrooms, roots, pine cones, leaves, twigs and bark. They do not normally eat meat. However, if faced with hunger they have been known to eat bird eggs, snakes, snails and insects. What do squirrels eat

  5. They mate twice a year. 3. Their nests are called dreys. 5. They can run 20 miles perhour. 6. Their teeth never stop growing. Gnawing keeps squirrels' teeth from growing into their necks. 7. When frightened, they dart back and forth to confuse predators. This doesn't work with cars, however, so most city squirrels don't live longer than a year. 8. Although considered granivores (animals that eat grains and nuts), they will eat almost anything. 9. Gray squirrels bury their acorns all over the place ("scatter hoarding"), then forget where. Forgotten acorns become trees. This forgetfulness is the main way oak and other hardwood forests grow and spread, scientists say. 10. Gray squirrels are called "living fossils" because they haven't changed much in 37 million years. A squirrel's brain is almost the size of a walnut. They communicate with their distinctive chirps. Squirrels hardly move out of their nests in the night. They get back to their nests before it gets dark. A squirrel can survive even if it jumps from a height of 100 ft. as it has padded feet. Squirrels are so fast that they can run at the speed of 20 miles per hour. When squirrel are they are blind for almost 2 months or more. The female squirrel gives birth to 4 or 8 offspring's a year.
