Can you feed squirrels salted peanuts?

I want to feed the squirrels.

The salt would make them very dehydrated, also keep in mind that their bodies are much smaller than ours, so that amount of salt is worse for them than us.

You can feed squirrels salted peanuts but, unsalted is a healthier choice for them. Most squirrels are getting ready to hibernate or will at least slow down this time of year. An increase in salt could lead to them looking for water at an bad time of year.

There is no reason you shouldn't feed the squirrels salted peanuts. Salt is good for any animal as long as its not a copious amount of it. Feeding them a few salty peanuts will not hurt them.

Really i dont think squirrels are picky. They will eat just about anything they can get. So, im pretty certain that salted peanuts will not harm the squirrels. If your worried about it mabye try asking your local vet.
