How do squirrels remember where they bury their nuts?


One from my wife: We’ve got lots of squirrels in our garden and we’ve been feeding them. So she wants to know how they remember where they buried their nuts?

Answer: It’s quite simple… they just remember from visual cues where they left them. They did an experiment and found the squirrels just knew where they were.
