The eastern gray squirrel or grey squirrel eat a range of foods, such as tree bark, berries, many types of seeds and acorns, walnuts, and other nuts, and some types of fungi found in the forests, including fly agaric mushrooms.
Eastern gray squirrels breed twice a year, December to February and May to June, though this is slightly delayed in more northern latitudes. The first litter is born in February to March, the second in June to July. Normally, two to six young are born in each litter, but this number can be as high as eight. The gestation period is about 44 days. The young are weaned at seven weeks and leave the nest after 10 weeks.
Eastern gray squirrels can start breeding as early as five and a half months old,but usually breed for the first time at the age of one.These squirrels can live to be 20 years old in captivity, but in the wild usually only live up to 12.5 years.
