This lively little animal has probably been living in 'a nice cool leafy home in the fork of a tree. Now with the approach of cold weather he wants to move to a snug; tree hole. . The hole has to be large enough for the squirrel to enter and big enough to store a winter's supply of nuts. 'It must b« deep enough to keep out the snow and cold. Each hole is looked into until the house hunting squirrel finds one that suits him. Then he starts to fill it with nute and other good things to eat: . Some animals look,for their winter home in a lake or pond. Frogs and salamanders swim deep down to the very bottom and curl up in the mud. Snails and'some kinds of fish do th« same thing. The lively water strider and the whirligig beetl« oftea follow them and lay dormant in their muddy'apartment all winter.
