There are 3 types of squirrels: ground squirrels, tree squirrels and even flying squirrels! Flying squirrels have flaps of skin attached to their arms and legs, which creates a square shape when they stretch out and helps them glide through the air. Squirrels have a long bushy tail and fur in either a grey or reddish-brown colour.
They use their tails like a parachute to balance in the air.
Believe it or not…
They can jump as high as 5 feet!
