  Squirrel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Squirrel is the common name for rodents of the family Sciuridae.
However, the Sciuridae also include flying squirrels, and ground squirrels such as the chipmunks, prairie dogs, and woodchucks.
The unrelated family Anomaluridae also have "squirrel" in their common name, though they are usually referred to as "scaly-tailed flying squirrels".

 Sciuridae phylogeny using RAG1 and c-myc
Their 273 species occupy a wide diversity of habitats.
Many questions about the biology and evolutionary history of squirrels (the family Sciuridae) remain unanswered.
Prominent among these are the evolutionary origins of the complex social systems of prairie dogs and their relatives, and whether the ability to glide evolved once among "flying" squirrels, or if it is a remarkable example of the same features evolving independently in two or more separate groups of species.
