They also look mega cute when burying their nuts and acorns.

But that means TREES! And more trees mean more nuts, so basically squirrels are little farmers.

It is also good for the environment as it means that trees grow farther apart from each other and forests can spread. Squirrels are basically the Eco-warriors of the animal kingdom.
