Hi there! My name is Simon, and I’m a squirrel enthusiast. Living in the UK has given me the opportunity to observe and interact with these little critters over the years, and I’ve developed a strong interest in learning everything I can about them.

My travels to the USA, Mexico, Austria, Germany, and the Canary Islands have only fueled my curiosity and admiration for these bushy-tailed creatures. I’ve spent countless hours observing, studying, and feeding them!

With all this experience under my belt and my burning passion for all things squirrel-related, I thought it was time to share my knowledge with others. That’s why I created Squirrel University, a platform dedicated to educating people about these adorable creatures.

Whether you’re a fellow squirrel-obsessed individual looking to learn more, or just curious about these critters and their behavior, you’ve come to the right place. Join me on this nutty adventure of learning and appreciation for our fluffy, furry friends!
