The Kaumberg Eichhornchen is common among the vast woodlands of Kaumberg. However, due to the creature's tendency of hitching rides on the planet's outbound lumber shipments, it has spread to many other worlds throughout the Inner Sphere. Many humans have taken the creatures in as pets due to their cute appearance and the soothing sounds they make.
However, they have a tremendous appetite for wood products and will gladly chew up furniture as well as the structural support elements of buildings. This tendency for destruction has led many to treat them as pests.
