Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris, Veverka obecná) - wild animal, but still from ZOO Schönbrunn, Vienna, Austria :D



Gift for my best friend *Allerlei :giggle:



Thank you for all the comments and faves :hug:
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)
Location: Europe, Asia
Size: 23 cm long body + 20 cm long tail weight: up to 340 g
Diet: seeds, nuts, fungies, berries, but also bird eggs
Conservation status: Least Concern
Interesting facts: although they are called RED, red squirrels can have also brown or even almost black coats. Belly is white | although red squirrels are not endangered right now, American grey squirrel, which got to Europe, can be a danger for them, as grey squirrels are able to eat also acorns (red squirrels are not able to feed on acorns), so they have easier life in Europe and they are a serious competition for native Red squirrel. Also, they carrie an illness, which is fatal for Eurasian red squirrels. Grey squirrels caused serious decrease of number of Red squirrels in UK | red squirrels can reach 7 years in the wild | female squirrel can give a birth two times a year – they can have 2-6 babies | squirrels are evil! (now let’s see, who really read this description ;D)

Squirrels are evil. I'm telling you, those rodents are crazy. At my college, they'll run up to a few feet away from you and hiss at you, then dart behind a tree or a trash can. Then come out and just watch you...creepy little bastards. :shakefist:
