Squirrels? - Scare Them Away Easily, If You Want To

  • Diet: What Do Raccoons Eat?

If you've watched videos of people playing with squirrels on our site or YouTube, you understandably might now be thinking, "Hey, that looks like fun! Where can I buy a squirrel?" This article will explain how you can get all the cuddly squirrels you want for free.

First, before you jump in to getting your own squirrel, it's important to learn some basic facts.

Baby squirrels are remarkably willing to be raised by humans. It's amazing. For the first six months of their life, if you give them good care and love, they will happily accept you as their mama. They are enthusiastic fun loving little creatures, and you can experience many hours of joy with young squirrels.

As the babies come to maturity, the situation changes. Adult squirrels are like adult humans. They want to go off in to the world, live the life a million years of evolution have designed them to live, revel in their freedom, and engage in, um, baby making activities.

If an adult squirrel is denied the life they were designed to live, they become less cuddly, anxious, and maybe even a bit ornery. All the energy they would normally use in a natural life outdoors now gets applied to chewing on your furniture, electric cords, and maybe your fingers. Adult squirrels can not be house trained either.

If you take this approach, you'll find the vast majority of wildlife rehabbers will welcome you with open arms, and help you have the experience you want to have.

You don't have to dive in to raising baby squirrels until you're ready. As example, you might volunteer to baby sit baby squirrels for a few days when the rehabbers go out of town. You might volunteer to assist the rehabbers with their squirrels.

Once you're ready to have your own baby squirrels, you will have to spend some money on supplies. It's not real expensive, but especially the first time, you need to stock up on formula, syringes, nipples, cages and so on.

So, you've learned that baby squirrels make great pets, and adult squirrels do not. You've also learned that, if you do it right, you'll never have to buy a baby squirrel.

  • Raccoon Behavior in Residential Areas

The Beaver of North America has a world-wide reputation for its wonderful instinct and shrewdness. The general appearance of this animal is that of a very large muskrat with a broad flattened tail, and the habits of both these animals are in many respects alike. The beaver is an amphibious creature and social in its habits of living, large numbers congregating together and forming little villages. The muskrat has this same propensity, but the habitation of the beaver is on a much more extensive scale. These huts or "Beaver lodges," are generally made in rivers and brooks; although sometimes in lakes or large ponds. They are chiefly composed of branches, moss, grass and mud, and are large enough to accommodate a family of five or six.

The form of the "lodges" is dome-like, and it varies considerably in size. The foundation is made on the bottom of the river, and the hut is built up like a mound, often twenty feet in diameter and projecting several feet above the surface of the water. The walls of this structure are often five or six feet thick, and the roofs are all finished off with a thick layer of mud laid on with amazing smoothness. These huts form the winter habitations of the beavers, and as this compost of mud, grass and branches becomes congealed into a solid mass by the severe frosts of winter, it can easily be seen that they afford a safe shelter against any intruder and particularly the wolverine, which is a most deadly enemy to the beaver. So hard does this frozen mass become as to defy even the edges of iron tools, and the breaking open of the "Beaver houses" is at no time an easy task. Causing many duck hunters to employ the use of dynamite! Beavers work almost entirely in the dark; and a pond which is calm and placid in the day time will be found in the night to be full of life and motion, and the squealing and splashing in the water will bear evidence of their industry. Lest the beavers should not have a sufficient depth of water at all seasons, they are in the habit of constructing veritable dams to ensure that result.

The beavers, alarmed at the invasion of their sanctums, make for the banks, and the ready huntsmen stationed at the various holes, watch for their victims beneath the openings, until a violent motion or discoloration of the water betrays their passage beneath. The entrance to the holes in the bank is then instantly closed with stakes and the beaver is made prisoner in his burrow. When the depth of the burrow will admit, the arm of the hunter is introduced, and the animal pulled out, but otherwise a long hook lashed to a pole is employed for this purpose. Scores of beavers are sometimes taken in this way in a few hours. Spearing is also often successfully resorted to, and when the ice is thin and transparent the beavers may be clearly observed as they come to the surface, beneath the ice, for air.

Raccoons live just about everywhere, from California all the way to the East Coast. These animals cause numerous problems not only to people, but to the environment as well. They live in hollow logs, under porches, attics and have even been found living In garages and in farm machinery. Usually in winter, Animal Control gets a lot of calls for Raccoons in people's homes. (Mainly being found in attics). Animal control will hopefully find these animals and safely remove them far from your home. Once removed and released the Raccoon has been known to find their way back to its "home". That's why Animal Control has been known to release them far enough away so they cannot return. Raccoons are very curious. They get into trash cans, can turn on water spickets, and can even open doors. Most of their mischief is due in search of food. These animals are Nocturnal. (Sleeping in day, and awake at night.) While you are sleeping, they are out getting into almost everything. These animals are known for completely tearing up lawns in search for grub worms. This is a favorite item on its menu. Just one Raccoon can destroy an entire yard in one night.

Raccoons are very determined when it comes to food and will do anything to get it. Another important part of these animals is that they carry diseases. One, a very common one: Rabies, once infected this animal can be extremely aggressive, foam at the mouth and look very unpleasant. The Raccoons feces (poop) can carry what is called Roundworm, (Baylisascaris procyonis) which if touched by a human can be sometimes deadly. The Roundworm is a parasite that can live in the intestine and can travel through the body infecting different organs. Some cases have led to death. Raccoons are amazing climbers and swimmers. Climbing is a major part or a raccoon's lifestyle, their feet and tail were perfectly designed for that purpose. The tail used for balancing and the feet designed for clinging and hanging. Raccoons can climb up and down, left and right, forward and even climb down backwards! A Raccoon in the wild can live anywhere from 5-12 years in the wild, andin captivity up to 20 years! Their weight runs anywhere from 12-20 lbs, the largest on record was 60lbs! These fuzzy critters can teach us so much, not only about them, but how we as people can care for them and their environment.
