You can't use inverted rook to represent squirrels, there isn't enough rooks. Use the king and queen to represent squirrels like where the pieces starts in a normal chess game.

It looks a bit difficult to capture the Squirrel, with only the Crow and Pawn uncovered by its capture range.

The aim of retaining all of something and capturing one of everything makes
an interesting complement to Extinction Chess, in which the aim is
retaining one of everything and capturing all of something. One point
about equipment: surely it will usually be the King and Queen which are
used to represent the Squirrels.
