Ive got one and it wont eat and it wont leave and no adult comes for it.


BTW how bad are they to bite? This one has'nt eyt but does'nt mean it wont. Im guessing its 6 weeks old or so. Full fur and bushy tail . Looks like a small adult.

yea actually hehehe

they were a lil bit younger though - try warmed milk through an eyedropper to get it started / spark it eating in captivity.  never been bitten, but their teeth are sharp / powerful enough to crack an acorn so id say try to avoid it smile  does it look injured or sick in any way? generally when animal behave in strange ways (like not leaving a spot) its an indication something is wrong.  oh and keep a low level heat lamp on it too.

Check with you local pet store. Our local ones(not the big chain ones) know a lot about raising all sorts of wild baby animals.

Depends entirely on your tolerance for furry tongue.

As I posted on OO, my sister and her husband raised a baby squirrel he brought home from a construction site.  It was really sweet and cute when it was little.  But when it matured instincts kicked in and it got very territorial and mean.  It bit clean through her fingernail and would chase strangers in the house.  It jumped on my thigh once and scratched me good.

Well this one is a juvi Im told. He seems fine. Ive gotten him to eat some peanut butter and some hickory nuts i cracked for him. Have a giant tree in the yard so got plenty of food.

He refuses to climb a tree or yell for mommy so i guess im finishing his raising. Maybe be 2 weeks or so before he can go out. He is very cuddly and does not bite..yet.

Heres some pics.

You may want to call a local wildlife rescue office...  They'll refer you to somebody who has training in raising orphaned animals.  Animal rescue offices usually offer classes for locals interested in learning to take care of the little guys.  On multiple occassions I've turned baby rabbits, flying squirrels, squirrels, and chipmunks over to the animal rescue people.  They know how to raise them without them imprinting on humans, which is much better for them for when they return to the wild.

You also might need a license.  I know that a local woman didn't have a license for a monkey she had and it got loose and started attacking people in the neighborhood.  I don't know if it applies to a squirrel, and I guess I really doubt it, but better to be safe than sorry.

When squirrels raised from captivity get loose and attack the neighbors! Next time on Fox! biggrin

But was it flinging poo? That's the real hazard.
