This might sound nuts. In fact, it might even be so odd it’ll run you up a tree.

A recent study from the University of California – Davis reveals that squirrels and people have similar personalities. The main attributes to squirrel and human behavior are boldness, aggressiveness, activity level and sociability.

The study looked at the golden-mantled ground squirrel, which is common in the United States and Canada.

Understanding how an animal’s personality influences use of space is important for wildlife conservation, study findings suggest.

“This adds to the small but growing number of studies showing that individuals matter,” lead author Jaclyn Aliperti said.
