    Default Huney suckel or jasmine

    are these ok for the babies to play with and chew??
    Don't know if it is honey suckle or Jasmine, I think its Jasmine, smells divine, bunnies love it but I dont see the wilds eating it.

    That is Star Jasmine. Nonnative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trachel...um_jasminoides

    ASPCA says nontoxic for dogs/cats. http://www.aspca.org/Pet-care/poison...r-jasmine.aspx

    Listed as NONTOXIC for birds (and they are so sensitive). http://www.pamperedpeeps.com/danger.htm

    So, I would venture that is safe, but I don't know if its tasty!

    One thing i have noticed about the jasmine is that it emits a milky like sap when you cut it. I dont know if its toxic or not but I dont ever see my yard squirrels around them. However, birds nest in the vines so it must be ok.

    Like Jackie says:
    the squirrels here in SC are definitely eating Mulberry but we don't have berries yet so they eat the buds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morus_(plant)

    I'm offering Honeysuckle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honeysuckle <---ours are more white/Yellow in color

    Muscadine grapes will be soon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscadine

    Stormy Lee likes the honey suckle and dandelions that are in the yard. She also likes the wild violets and clover. Is Crepe myrtle edible? The Tulip Poplar tree had lovely flowers on it, and she got a large limb full to munch on. Her daddy brings big tree limbs of anything I tell him its safe for her to chew on for her room. She has a forest inside! She loves the blueberry limbs, and several types of oak, sassafras, birch, pine, hickory, sweetgum and dogwood. I haven't given her Mimosa or chinaberry because I didn't know if they were toxic. I get a big mess to clean.

    I was always told that any vine when it gives off a milky substance is very much like a poison ivy and can react to you just like a poison ivy plant ....whenever I have come in contact with my jasmine etc. I really wash my hands so as far as CC or LG ever getting any Just my thoughts but they have so much else to chew on that I know is good for them

    There is a plant that has yellow flowers and is a vine that some people call jasmine, but it is really Carolina Jessamine. It is toxic.

    Carolina jasmine can be toxic to animals if it’s ingested. It can cause vomiting, diarrhea and death. Some varieties of honeysuckle are more toxic than others. Most squirrels instinctively know not to eat toxic plants. There have been instances where a squirrel kept in captivity was given a toxic plant accidentally and did consume it and died. It’s for this reason it’s best to research plants before giving them to a captive squirrel. Here’s a list of foods that are safe for squirrels. At the bottom of the chart are wild foods that are also safe.

    https://thesquirrelboard.com/forums/...-Pet-Squirrels

    If you have a captive squirrel it is very important that you feed a balanced diet that contains some form of hard extruded rodent block, like Oxbow Regal Rat or Mazuri Rat Diet. A diet high in nuts, seeds or corn will cause the squirrel to develop metabolic bone disease which will eventually kill it.
