  1. No it has not evolved it has adapted to its given habitat to better its living conditions and therefore its life.

  2. The squirrel has not evolved because the squirrels inherited traits have not changed.

  3. No because the offspring have inherited the same traits

  4. It hasn’t evolved at all because nothing abut its genetics has changed, it’s the same animal just able to produce faster due to adaptability.

  5. I don’t think it would have evolved, if it evolved it would have grown wings or something. All it did was reproduce.

  6. No it has not evolved its traits are still the same it has just changed it’s habitat

  7. It has not evolved because the squirrel has not changed.

  8. No the squirrel has not evolved it has adapted to a new habitat and thrived because there is no competition or overcrowding.

  9. It didn’t evolve, it adapted. If it had evolved, something would happen over a longer period of time. Usually evolution is something shown physically

  10. No, the squrreil has learned to adapt to the enviornment it is in. This way it can survive. It’s children though will have sort of evolved since they will be able to grow up under the desk instead of in th forest since they were born there.

  11. No because the squirrel just changed where it lived its not evolution.

  12. No the squirrel has not evolved it has just found a good shelter.

  13. No it has not evolved, it has just adapted to its habitat.

  14. No the squirrel has adapted. Evolution takes millions of years to take place

  15. Even though the squirrel has reproduced, there are no changes in traits. The squirrel has just adapted to its environment.

  16. The squirrel has adapted, not evolved. It found a way to better survive in it’s surroundings but it’s physical traits are still the same.
