I thought this was some intresting information CHICAGO - Squirrels hit the genetic lottery with their chubby cheeks and bushy tails. It's hard to imagine picnickers tossing peanuts and cookies at the rodents if they looked like rats. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061211/ap_on_re_us/city_squirrels

I think it is odd that we avoid hitting a squirrel but it wouldn't bother us if we ran over a rat. I am guilty of this too, I think squirrels are cuter than rats but they are all from the same family. What is even stranger is this article, someone is going to spend money and time to study the winter habits of squirrels. How bizarre!
