  1. Squorty Tails looks like a Delmarvalous were-squirrel in the midst of a moonlit metamorphosis.

    Do squirrels actually have nipples and belly-buttons?

  2. Megan – I asked the people at [Mad Science Network](http://www.madsci.org/) if squirrels actually have belly buttons and nipples. Hopefully they’ll get back to me. When they do, I’ll let you know and post a comment here.

  3. They should definitely have belly buttons (they are placental mammals). It’s possible that their belly buttons become much reduced with age though and hidden beneath fur.

    As for the nipples: female squirrels certainly would have them. I think they probably have more than 2 of them for that matter.

    In the case of male squirrels It’s likely they have them as well, although again probably reduced in size and not functional.

  4. since i have sounding a bit uneducated in the previous post, let me rephrase the question to clarify what i really wanted to know: do the belly buttons and nipples of squirrels actually show through their fur?
