What was that creature? It looked like a squirrel...These squirrels are unique to Urskoga. They are an unknown type of Red Squirrels that are said to have always existed here.
They aren't often spoken about though, since most people appear to forget them right after they have seen them...
AnatomyThey look like regular red squirrels but they are paler and people claim that sometimes it looks like their eyes are shining.
Distribution & HabitatThe cave squirrels, like the name implies, live in the old cave system below Urskoga. This is where they can mainly be found but people have spotted them around town. Very few people know why the creatures leave the caves that they otherwise spend their entire lives in. The squirrels build nests out of dry dead plants in crevices in the top of the cave walls. They usually live in their nests alone but in colder parts of the cave system several squirrels can share a nest.
Ah, Ratatoskr, what can you tell me?The cave squirrels eat fungi, berries, and sometimes nuts. Fungi and berries are found in the cave system while nuts can be found in the forest close to the exits of the cave system. The visitors to the caves sometimes also offer nuts to the squirrels.
