The following recipe was excerpted from ‘Nut Balls For Squirrels’. Nut balls are generally well liked by most squirrels and considered a good sources of Calcium, fat, Vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus, Vitamin C and other vitamins necessary for proper nutrition. As with all nutrition for wildlife or exotic pets, discuss all diet choices with your veterinarian before introducing new foods.
