Squirrels: The Animal Answer Guide
National Squirrel Appreciation Day
-- The creator of National Squirrel Appreciation Day, Christy Hargrove, is a wildlife rehabilitator in North Carolina and is affiliated with the Western North Carolina Nature Center. According to Christy, The Celebration of the event itself is up to the individual or group — anything from putting out extra food for the squirrels to learning something new about the species. According to the Integrated Taxonomic Information System of North America (ITIS), there are over 200 species of squirrels. Some of the oldest squirrels categorized on the list are the nocturnal arrow flying squirrel (validated in 1766) and the Black Giant (validated in 1778).

Read: Squirrels: The Animal Answer Guide
-- Did you know a groundhog is really a type of squirrel? Squirrels control their body temperature with their tails? Most squirrels have yellow-tinted eye lenses that work like sunglasses to reduce glare? Tree squirrels can turn their hind feet completely around when climbing down a tree head-first? In Squirrels: The Animal Answer Guide, Richard W. Thorington Jr., and Katie Ferrell unveil the fascinating world of one of the most-watched mammals on the planet. With over one hundred photographs and an intuitive question-and-answer format, this authoritative and engaging guide sheds light on a common mammal which is anything but commonplace.
