The American red squirrel occupies all of the temperate, forested regions of northern North America. An adult weighs between 145 and 260 g (5 to 9 oz.)
The American red squirrel constructs its nest in the branches or in cavities of trees or stumps. In winter, it lives on food that it diligently stored during late summer and autumn. A single cache may contain several hundred spruce or pine cones.
