squirrel watching

this morning while out walking ivan this question came to mind –  how long do squirrels live? and also, how come you never see really little baby squirrels? just in case you find yourself wondering the same thing,  i’ll save you the trip to wikipedia. * The life span of the squirrel is approximately six years. Most urban squirrels do not reach their first birthday. This is due not to predators, but rather to automobiles. Compared to its rural counterpart, which often parishes from the lack of food. Squirrels are usually born in the early spring. The average litter consists of four.  A baby squirrel weighs approximately one ounce at birth,  and is about one inch long. They do not have hair or teeth, and are virtually blind for the first six to eight weeks. * no one seems to have information on why you never see the babies.  i guess they’re really good hiders. *
