What animal lives in a drey (dray)?


Squirrels build homes the world over, and most species live in either a den or a drey (sometimes spelled dray). A cavity in a tree is the location of a den. A drey is at the conjunction of two or more limbs. Most dreys are at least 20 feet above the ground and consist of moss, leaves, twigs and bark. The interior lining is pine needles, grass and other soft materials. Source: Reference.com
