id imagine removing the rear leg would give a disadvantage more due to
the strength of the leg than the loss of stance.

the back legs seem much stronger, and i suggest that they use
the back legs in a cat like gutting motion in fights.

while i'll accept the importance of stance in combat, squirrels are  
specialists at
moving in 3 dimensionsal situations where they dont always have good  
grips with
both back paws, i believe this will further support my theory by  
the importance of stance to the furry little critters.
