A squirrel king is a collection of squirrels whose tails have tangled together, making them unable to separate themselves. It is similar to a phenomenon recorded in rats, the rat king, of rats with tails tangled together. A squirrel king starts as a litter of young in the same nest, whose tails become knotted together by nesting materials, and/or by tree sap gluing the tails together, particularly if the young squirrels have been gnawing bark of the tree that their nest is in, letting sap flow. If the squirrels are not separated, when they try to come out of their nest, they may fall to the ground still all joined to each other, and will invariably die, making this a lethal condition, unless someone finds them and separates them. Unlike the rat king, the squirrel king is not found in medieval European literature. For this use of the word 'king', see Rat king#Etymology and folklore.
