Gem Squirrels are harmless critters that only spawn in the cavern layer, and have a higher spawn chance during rains.[1]

Gem Squirrels have only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Gem Squirrels can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Gem Squirrel Cages). Once crafted, the Gem Squirrels cannot be released again, unless the furniture item is de-crafted via Shimmer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

Tips

  • The best way to spawn any Gem Squirrel is to make a town in the cavern layer. Same as other critters, they will spawn more frequently around NPCs.

Trivia

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for Gem Squirrels: "Glistening squirrels who strayed too deep become ensorcelled with residual cursed energy retained in gemstones."
