Facts about grey squirrels.
The Grey squirrel is an inhabitant of Northeastern North America and also inhabits parts of Western Europe and Central Asia. They are native to these areas because they cannot survive in any other climates. Their nest habits, breeding habits, food, predators, reproductive patterns are different all around the world due to their natural range. The adults can measure 20-27 cm (8-11 inches) long, with a tail measuring 17-25 cm (7-10 inches). Male grey squirrels can have an average weight of 350-400g, while females weigh about 300g less on average. The adult males have disproportionately large teeth, some up to four times larger than those of their female counterparts.
A nest can be built anywhere, depending on what is available to them. They will often build their nests in trees, but they can also be found in rocks and in building eaves. They will also build their nests indoors in locations such as attics, garages, crawl spaces, chimneys, and roof spaces.
Squirrels communicate through different means such as facial expressions, tail wagging, vocalizations. They also will groom each other to get the scent of their fur onto one another, which helps them recognize where they are going as well as have a stronger bond with other squirrels.
Squirrels can spread a variety of diseases, such as rabies, salmonella, and tularemia. They can spread these diseases through their saliva, faeces, and urine. In addition, they can contaminate food sources with their saliva, faeces, and urine as well.
