The red squirrel is the sweetest rodent is Europe. Did you know they only live for 2 or 3 years and 80% of them can not survive their first winter? Did you know their habitat is decreasing because the where the grey squirrel appeared (by the help of humans) the red squirrel ran away. Why is that? Because the grey one is more aggressive, can digest the food more effecively and to top it all it carries a fatal disease to red ones. In Europe grey squirrels can be found in Great Britain, Ireland and Italy. In some decades they will reach Central Europe.
