    Unhappy male squirrel biting/sucking his own genitals

    help!! I recently took in a single male baby squirrel after his family was attacked by a hawk and I recently noticed that his genitals were very red like they had been bleeding. I assume that he make be chewing or sucking on them but Iím not sure why?? We have guessed that he is around 5-7 weeks old. He uses the bathroom frequently on his own (pees a lot and poops regularly). Does anybody know why this is happening and how to prevent it??

    Ok what are you feeding him, how often , and which formula?
    What kind of container do you have him in?
    Has he been hydrated?
    These are all things we need to know so we can move forward 👍
    Thank you for rescuing

    Knowing baby's body weight is essential.
    Suckling often is contributed to being underfed.
    They should be fed between 5-7% of body weight.

    At 5-7 weeks he still will need to be fed formula for another 6-7 weeks. What formula are you feeding?

    Iím also in Florida and can help find a rehabber to take him if you like?
