Anyone who has seen squirrels at play knows they are incredible athletes with graceful bodies capable of death defying scrambles and leaps from heights that would give you vertigo. Their little furry sciurine packages are also quite flexible, as you can see above with this guy. He has an itch in a place he can only scratch with his teeth, and since they don’t make Cruex for squirrels, he has to lift his leg high up to get his muzzle down there. I captured him in this pretzel form with arm over leg, and foot at the same level as his hand. He looks like a cute little contortionist!
This is also the same squirrel I featured last week with the prehensile tail! Not many critters can get the honor of being the Saturday Squirrel two weeks in a row!
On the seventh anniversary of the day Evil Squirrel was created, I wish you all a great weekend!
