    I'm not sure Mel, I was just told the raintree is poisonous to rats. I remember looking it up at one time and I did see something about that, so I stopped giving it to my kids. Too bad since I have acres full of raintrees.

    Along the lines of chew toys, I saw cooked chicken bones on a list here, is that really true as it was the first time seeing that. Also, those bird cuttlebone things were on it as well, just wanted to double check before getting. Thank you

    I have live bamboo growing in my yard. It took a couple of years to get to the point where it spreads (which can be a problem) but my squirrel really likes the fresh bamboo, younger green shoots that are about the thickness of a regular Sharpie. I also cut down sections and freeze them, which keeps them green. I do that with green pinecones as well, since they love those but they are only normally available a few months out of the year.

    I was concerned about bamboo chew toys, especially the ones coming from China and Taiwan, because of possible toxins.

    The live bamboo also drops a lot of leave which both the wild ones and the indoor one love to use for nesting.

    I have a yard full of bamboo I love it for privacy fencing 👍
    I never have seen my wilds eat them and didn't know you could give them to squirrels.
