Happy, Hungry Squirrels

By now, females may have had their first litter and, no doubt, some will be working on their next.

Infant squirrels, naked, blind and deaf, although who really knows about the hearing part, nestle together in treetop balls of leaves until almost two months old before they venture into the wide wonderful world.

Meanwhile, the adults dine lavishly on what they can get their little mitts on. In this case, at M-L's sanctuary, it's sunflower seeds and nuts which is why they are glossy and happy little rodents.
