A boattail has nothing to do with saving a squirrel, although having one on your car might save the life of a fellow motorist whose sight hasn't gotten partially blinded by the trail of spray kicked up by your car when driving on a wet road. Boattailed cars throw up almost no spray behind them and the little there is remains within 3 feet of the ground. If you want to save a squirrel, you'd need to concentrate of modifying the front of the car, mainly the front wheel air splitters to keep them from getting under the wheels.
