The Gold Squirrel is a harmless critter. It is a golden recolor of the ordinary Squirrel, with a 0.25*1/400 (0.25%) chance of spawning in place of the ordinary version.

Gold Squirrel has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Gold Squirrel can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Gold Squirrel Cage). Once crafted, the Gold Squirrel cannot be released again. Gold Squirrel itself or the crafted furniture can be sold for 10.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer or its upgrades.
