Where does he feel most at home?

The Eastern gray squirrel is a squirrel that originally occurs in the east of the United States and Canada. The species is now also common in Great Britain.

What's his favourite food?

They like acorns, grains, shoots, flowers, nuts, seeds, fruits, buds, mushrooms and carrots. Sometimes they will eat corn, bird eggs and insects as well.

Fact

In England the gray squirrels increasingly threaten the red squirrels that are originally from England. There’re only about 15,000 red squirrels left, while there are now more than 2 million gray squirrels living there.
