At this stage, it is important for an adult to carefully assess the squirrel in a quiet room without children or pets present
Some types of squirrels (such as ) can be domesticated, but it takes a great amount of time and care to acclimate them to humans. Because the process is not guaranteed to be effective, and even simple mistakes can lead to an animal causing serious injury as it matures, I am not comfortable recommending them as pets.

Research the type of monkey you are thinking of getting. Capuchins are more social than other kinds, however, it always depends on the individual personality just as people have. Squirrel monkeys can be very social as well, but may bite more often than capuchins, because they are more nervous (small size) and are frightened easier. Macaques are also common, however, macaques are larger and stronger. (Many animal rights groups and organizations opposed to private ownership say they can carry Herpes B, although with regular testing and proper vet care, Herpes in pet populations is highly unlikely. Herpes B is very difficult to transmit, as the animal has to be under high levels of stress to shed the virus, such as in invasive research. There has never been a reported case in the pet sector.) FORMULA: the right formula is Esbilac Powder Milk Replacer for puppies with heavy whipping cream added. Scientific studies show that Esbilac Powder more closely resembles mother squirrel milk than any homemade formula or other brands. Be sure to use Esbilac Powder - the liquid is not exactly the same formula; in addition, it is less nutritious because it has a greater dilution than the powder will have after reconstituting. Additionallly, do not use Hartz Nursemaid, Mother's Helper, human infant formula, goat's milk, evaporated milk, or other cow's milk. These products are so poor nutritionally that they can cause the death of your baby through starvation, diarrhea, or malnutrition; if your baby does survive being fed these poor formulas, he will be small, weak, and prone to metabolic bone disease. Do not believe that pet store clerks know anything about the dietary needs of infant squirrels - they are there to sell the products displayed in that store. Additionally, most vets don't know about the nutritional needs of squirrels: their training and most of their experience is with domestic animals who have different needs from wildlife. Many products advertise on the can that they can be fed to squirrels and other wildlife - that doesn't mean they should be. Esbilac Powder is expensive and sometimes hard to find, but if you are going to the trouble to love and care for this baby and raise it to freedom, why subvert your efforts with a formula that will not meet its nutritional needs?
