    a friend found it laying under a tree getting ate alive by ants! he saved from a painful death and has been feeding every 3 hours for the past week. he even has to rub its butthole with a warm Q-tip to make it poop, the mom squirrel normally does that with her tongue!!!!

    Someone is getting some major Karma points. Such a sweet little critter, I would probably try and do the same thing. Please keep us posted on his/her development.

    I think a baby squirrel is the only critter I havent raised. But if the chance ever arises I will be glad to do it.

    Nice shots, you will probably want to try and get new ones once a week, you will be surprised how fast that thing grows.

    Cool. We tried to nurse an abandoned baby squirrel when I was a kid (recovered it from a downed tree).

    It died after a few weeks, maybe cause we didn't know about the wet q-tip thing. Or the tongue thing.
