Wow, Dr. Emerson's video is absolutely fabulous! Though I already knew much of it, it's helpful to hear everyone's questions...puts things in perspective. What exactly is the Gathering of Nuts? Is this a yearly gathering of rehabbers? Any info would be appreciated. Also, in reference to teeth care, is there a way to assist in keeping a squirrel's teeth the proper length before trimming is needed? For example, is it a good (healthy) idea to keep a pumice stone of some sort in their cage (God knows if they would even use it)? I do know that their own grinding typically keeps the length under control but just wanted to throw the question out there. Thx!

The Gathering of Nuts is our annual party/conference weekend for Squirrel Board members. Rehabbers, non-rehabbers, squirrel lovers, pet squirrel owners (it's legal in Florida), and even some hotel guests who wander in to join the fun are all welcome at the Gatherings. Watch the thread on our plans for 2013....

As for teeth-grinding, I always provide my rehab squirrels with cuttlebones, bone slices, branches and seashells for chewing.
