Folkmanis finger puppet mini squirrel, red


Squirrels belong to a large family of small or medium-sized rodents called the Sciuridae. The family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including woodchucks), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs. Squirrels are indigenous to the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa, and have been introduced to Australia.

Did you know that red squirrels are excellent climbers and spend most of their life in trees? These agile animals have a bushy tail that helps them balance as they jump from branch to branch. Their bright red fur provides good camouflage in the coniferous forests where they are often found. The Folkmanis finger puppet mini squirrel, red, provides children with a fun way to explore the adaptability and lively behavior of these nimble forest dwellers.
