Squirrels, and their smaller relatives Chipmunks, are small rodents that are mentioned in the DreamWorks Dragons franchise.


There are multiple rodents that can be classified as squirrels, including tree squirrelsground squirrelsflying squirrelschipmunksmarmots and prairie dogs.

Typical squirrels usually have slender bodies with bushy tails and large eyes. The hind legs are longer than the fore legs with four or five toes. They have an unique ability to rotate their ankles 180 degrees. By doing so, they can climb a tree downwards.

Chipmunks, on the other side, are much smaller than squirrels and tend to have their nests on the ground rather than in the trees.


While there is no function for the squirrels in the franchise, in reality some species can be kept as pets and others have been a source of food for humans.

In the episode "The Terrible Twos", when Fishlegs sees a baby Typhoomerang, he thinks that he saw a flaming squirrel or a flaming chipmunk, unknowing it was a dragon.

Fishlegs: And something weird jumped out of the bushes. It was like a... flaming squirrel.
Hiccup: Really? A flaming squirrel?
Fishlegs: Or a chipmunk. Or some other flammable rodent.
