Young minirrels almost never leave their acorn, opting for the safety it provides. After a few weeks they begin to venture out and start to explore, but never straying far from their acorn. While they enjoy playing, they also enjoy sleeping. A young minirrel will sleep almost eighty percent of the day.
Minirrels are extremely social creatures, living in large groups of up to twenty. During the day they can be found underneath oak trees, but as soon as night falls, they retreat into their acorn homes. When kept by themselves they become depressed and will withdraw into their homes, rarely leaving. A colony of minirrels, in the wild, will find one tree to live on, or around, for their entire lives. Multiple generations will live there for as long as the tree lives, which will be a long time, as oak trees with a colony living on them, seem to live a lot longer than normal trees. If the tree should die however, the colony will move on.
