If your yard is often visited by squirrels, then you may have encountered these furballs quite a bit. But have you ever wondered which type of squirrel you’re playing host to? This may come as a surprise to you, but there are 269 species of squirrels in the world!
Of course, if you try and learn about each type, then it can become confusing really quickly. Some basic differences can help narrow things down though. For instance, if your squirrel appears to live in trees, then these are tree squirrels. If they spend their time on the ground instead, then you have a ground squirrel for company.
