    I have two baby red squirrels and I am not exactly sure how old they are. I included a picture of one of them, so if I could get a general idea of how old they are that would be great! Thanks for any answers!

    I am not sure. Possibly around 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 weeks ago. Some friends of mine found them and took care of them for two weeks before giving the babies to me to take care of. They thought that the eyes had just opened recently before they found them, however I do not know if that is accurate or not. I donít know if it helps, but I weighed them two days ago and they weighed a little over 60 grams.
