Red Squirrel . . This Red Squirrel is now on LEGO CUUSOO. If you like it, you can support it to become a Lego set. See link: LEGO CUUSOO Lego sculpture of an Eurasian Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) sitting in a field in the Netherlands. Scale 1:1. Our squirrel sits in a typical squirrel position while eating a berry. She also like to eat nuts and seeds of trees. This squirrel is a female as you can see. She lives solitary, like all adult red squirrels. Notice the long fingers and toes with claws needed to climb in trees. Lego squirrel: Tail, arms, fingers and mouth of the Lego squirrel are moveable. Red squirrels often have a reddisch-brown color, like ours. Although other colors like grey and black occur too. The tail is used for balancing during jumps, but also to keep warm when sleeping. Lego squirrel: The tail is build around a flexible Lego tube. To keep the tail in shape, a metal wire is put into the tube (the only part that’s not made from Lego). A second version of Red squirrel is built without the wire. Squirrel comparison [1] Other Lego squirrels [2] Lego sculptures of squirrels are also present in Legoland: The Red squirrel on the left lives in Legoland Windsor (United Kingdom).
