Here are some Costa Rican Squirrel Facts:

Common Name: Squirrel


Family: Sciuridae

Tail not included, the variegated squirrel of costa rica grow to about 20-28 cm in length. The male squirrel has a penis, the female has a vagina. Preferring to mate when food is abundant, breeding season happens in March and April when the fruits begin to ripen.

A female squirrel will choose the strongest male during mating season and is unlikely to breed with that male again because female squirrels are dirty sluts. Squirrels are usually born in the early spring with the average litter consisting of four of the cute little bastards.

Male red-tailed squirrels do not help take care of the young.  The average adult male squirrel needs to eat about a pound of food a week to maintain an active life and large penis.
