Where Do Squirrels Hibernate?

Answer

Squirrels do not hibernate and are active all year round. During winter, squirrels retreat to their nests to conserve body heat and are thus not that easy to spot. In terms of appearance there is no major difference between males and females save for the sex organs.

Squirrels do not truly hibernate. They do slow their activity in the winter but venture out to find food. They spend the winter in nests built in tree cavities to keep out of the weather.
