A Squirrel is a pet a player may own with level 60 Summoning and 29 Hunter. Baby squirrel's can be caught in various locations around Gielinor using a net trap baited with nuts. They come in a variety of colours, which vary on location. Squirrels and Baby squirrels eat nuts, which can be bought at a pet shop. They may also be fed using a pet feeder in the Menagerie of a player-owned house. Each 11% of its hunger is 1% of its growth. Squirrels take around 6–7 hours to grow to 100%. They do not need to be fed in order for them to keep following you.
Squirrels can be light grey, white, light brown, dark brown or dark grey.
