An Eastern Gray Squirrel, native to the eastern North America.
Eastern Gray Squirrels are scatter-hoarder and hoards food mostly seeds in numerous small catches for later recovery. When that happens, the seed may sprout. Meaning, more trees and more food 🙂 Scientists in Pennsylvania consider Eastern Gray Squirrels as a model organism for studying the close evolutionary interaction between plants and animals. One such research findings show how Oak trees and Squirrels have evolved to help each other!
