    Default Personality changes?

    So Iím trying to find information of how squirrels personalities change through aging. Specifically now that my squirrels are 5+ months old the female who used to be super psycho playful has now calmed down and prefers the snuggles. She is still active and eats great but weirdly likes to be cuddled much more. The male who used to be the cuddled is now a playful biting spaz. Is this normal personality change in young adult squirrels or should I start looking for something wrong that Iím not possibly seeing? Female is also very svelte and the male is a chunk.

    Oh I think their personalities definitely change with age! Not sure about the calmness...but Iíve raised nearly a dozen Greys and a few Fox squirrels and as they get older, itís usually a good time to let them be squirrels and turn them lose. Last Grey I had any dealings with was my ex GFís...I rescued it as a baby and gave it to her due to me getting hurt bad and working out of State. Monkey Butt is a female and she really developed personality changes with age. Everything from sex specific (she didnít like guys) to even just bonding with my exís daughter when originally she was real close with my ex. It got to where she could get Monkey Butt out and let her run and play but would get a nip from time to time...all the while her daughter could roll Monkey up like a ball and then put her in a ferret leash and walk her around outside! It was funny to watch how she changed!

    That helps! Thank you. I knew they tend to form attachments and since Iím the only one who interacts it makes sense she formed it to me. Just didnít expect such a change in behavior
