Squirrel on a stick is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


A squirrel on a stick is a squirrel that has been skewered with a stick and roasted over an open flame. It heals a small amount of Hit Points, but with a small dose of radiation. It will also reduce Starvation by a sizable amount in Hardcore mode. Soldiers at Camp Forlorn Hope primarily subsist on squirrel.[1]
