Squirrels are known to be one of the friendliest animals. People like to feed them on the street and they also like to hang out with people.
They can be found in almost every habitat, from tropical rainforest to semi-arid desert, with the exception of the high arctic regions and the roughest deserts. They are mostly herbivores that consume seeds and nuts, although some also eat insects and small animals.
