One of the families at the co-op found a baby squirrel over the weekend.  They brought it to the co-op, because it must be fed every four hours.  We got to watch the mom feed the little thing.

Four or Five Weeks Old

Isn’t it cute?  She is feeding him 5cc of puppy formula (I think) and 3cc of Pedialyte.

Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class: Mammalia, Order: Rodentia

  1. wow, I don’t think that I’ve ever seen a baby squirrel in my life.

  2. We have raised a lot of squirrel babies to adulthood. They take to being domesticated very well!
