    Your idea is good but I personally think that squirrels should have something special to them, like the ice age squirrel that can't really die. 

    What do you think about that?

    The squirrels should be tamed too

    I don’t know if it’s good to have them be tamable.
    I think they should just spawn on trees and randomly plant saplings on grass blocks. This would, of course, count to MobGriefing.
    They could also have about 2 Hearts but an incredibly strong regeneration. They shouldn’t take fall damage either.

    I say tamed Squirrels should collect food items from trees like acorns (which would also be player-edible), apples, cocoa beans, and maybe even sweet berries. It would bring them to a player-specified location. Placing an acorn down (shift+place) signifies where to bring the items to.
    Alternatively, they could just bring these items directly to you. This item-gathering function is activated by shift+using them and then doing the same on a tree.
    This way they serve as a passive help in gathering food and resources.
    They would probably bring nuts and sticks for the most part, rarely finding the other three.

    Great! I love this, but could you give more detail, such as fur colour, what hunts it, etc?

    For simplicity, squirrels should be attracted to Saplings rather than acorns. Their movement should also be shotgun-like and sporadic as it is in real life. I imagine they'd live around trees and rustle in their leaves.

    Squirrels are such cute mobs! They really fit to Minecraft!

    They could have Orange, Brown, Grey and black fur 

     

    Squirrels and hedgehogs can bring more life to forests!

    IRL, Squirrels, due to interesting manipulation of their body weight and terminal velocity, are the only mammals that have a low enough terminal velocity to survive a fall from any height. This means that Squirrels would be like cats, immune to fall damage. Another idea for Squirrels is the ability to climb walls if they are made of wood planks, wood logs, or leaves. They can drop an acorn if killed, and have a rare chance to drop a random treasure item. Similarly, the Flying Squirrel is just like the Squirrel, but it can fly as well. Squirrels can eat Seeds and Acrons.
    Acorns can be dropped by squirrels when they die, but can also be dropped by random chance if you destroy oak leaves or spruce leaves.

    Yes this is a great idea I think squirrels should be able to take item that are dropped and run away they could also be feed with seeds because they eat seeds in real life

    I honestly love this idea! I think we should be able to tame them, but i also think that they should be able to attack a hostile mob like wolves do when the player hits something, or like the cats that scare creepers. they should not take fall damage,fur color should be gray,black,brown,and red (like Russian reds.) what would hunt them is:foxes. (much like they do with chickens)

    That's a great idea. I really love squirrels and would love to see them in Minecraft.
