Squirrel – Dumb Things They Chew On

I am no longer surprised at what squirrels find to chew on. From licking mortar to gnawing on a deck to eating a gas can, squirrels seem to find lots of thingd delicious.

Why?

My guess is stupidity in some cases and curiosity in others…plus maybe a need for minerals. Do you have a better explanation?
