Squirrels are a species of medium-sized rodents, one of the creatures fortunate enough to survive the destruction caused by the Great War. Although only seen in Fallout 76, they are a primary source of hunting and food for humans and can be found in the form of various meals throughout the Capital and Mojave Wastelands as well as the Commonwealth and Appalachia; these meals include squirrel on a stick, squirrel stew, squirrel bits and crispy squirrel bits. Squirrel pelts hang from the waist of the hunter's pelt outfit outfit added in the Far Harbor add-on.
