Once upside down, then again in spirals scurried up the tree trunk. Restless and always moving. Recklessly from branch to branch. The bushy tail acts as a rudder. No other animal can compete with squirrel in the art of climbing through the branches. 

This skills however are not available for these animals in their first days of life. In the beginning of their lives squirrels are completely dependent on the world: namely blind, deaf and naked.
