A lively animal, the squirrel is found throughout the world in a variety of habitats including forests, deserts, plains, and tundras. Although there are over 300 kinds of squirrels, there are basically two main types; tree squirrels and ground squirrels.
 
Tree squirrels, which have long bushy tails, can be found scampering through parks and woodlands, and live primarily in trees. Gray squirrels, red squirrels, and flying squirrels are some of the more commonly known tree squirrels. Ground squirrels, which have no tail and live primarily on the ground, include chipmunks, prairie dogs, and woodchucks.
 
The word squirrel comes from two Greek words meaning shadow tail, and was probably used because their large tails seem to curve over their backs, keeping them in the shade. Their tails also help squirrels keep their balance when running along branches and jumping from tree to tree.
 
 Red squirrels, which have reddish-brown fur and white underparts, are the noisiest and most active of all squirrels. They continually seem to scold one another with a variety of loud chirps and whistles, and are known for the large number of pine cones they can cut and store (one squirrel can cut 100 cones in an hour).
