You might think squirrels are just cute and cheeky. But they can do a lot more than just jump over garden fences. In the autumn these alert and adaptive storage experts put aside provisions for the winter and are able to find them again even in difficult conditions, such as under a thick layer of snow. When doing this, they not only sort each type of food into its own store, but also memorise these hiding places using their own treasure map.
Since they don’t hibernate, they retrieve information from this treasure map all winter long.
Squirrels continue to surprise animal experts not only with their agility, but also with this incredible cognitive ability.
The same principles apply to efficient storage management: impeccable planning, optimal use of available space, and a zero-error rate.
