Squirrels are excellent climbers and jumpers. Their teeth are strong enough to gnaw through soft wood, leather, or rope, given a few minutes. Their paws are also dexterous enough to pick up small objects and hold them (although they can't carry them, since they walk on all fours). They eat fruits, nuts, and grains. A master with a squirrel familiar gains a +2 bonus to Reflex saves.
