Of all the species of wild animals, none are
more frequently encountered than squirrels.
One of the main differences between squirrels and most other rodents is that
squirrels have a rather large, bushy tail. All squirrels have well-developed jaw
muscles and chisel-like front teeth that can chew through just about anything.
These front teeth are kept sharp by gnawing on hard objects such as woody plant
materials, seeds and nuts. A rodent's front teeth grow constantly, so they must
be filed down or they will grow to the point where they inhibit eating and the
animal will starve.
We hope you, your family and your friends will help us make The
Squirrel Board a fun and informative place to visit.
