A squirrel is a small omnivorous rodent, and are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including groundhogs), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents. Squirrels are indigenous to the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa, and were introduced by humans to Australia.
For many people, the type of squirrel that first comes to mind is a tree squirrel. Affectionately called "tree rats" by some in the furry fandom for their arboreal lifestyle, its most distinctive feature is its long, bushy tail.
