Do squirrels eat pine cones?

    It depends on the specific species, but yes, some do.  For red squirrels, pinecones are actually the preferred food.  However, most squirrels only take the seeds from pinecones.  They’ll go through a lot of work to take apart a pinecone just to get to the few seeds inside — about 15 minutes!
