Walk Like A Squirrel

Which way to Abbey Road?

Which way to Abbey Road?

Generally when we see squirrels in motion on the ground, they tend to be moving in one of two ways.  They are either darting around like their bushy tails have caught fire, or they’re hippity hopping like it’s a gay, happy day.  You don’t often see squirrels merely walking sqturday squirrel logoaround like normal, noncrazy quadrupeds do… so I was quite charmed to see this little guy out for a leisurely stroll across the local skateboard park a couple weeks ago.  He’s even toting along a tasty treat in his mouth as he casually traverses the concrete jungle.  I would imagine this squirrel chose to go on walkabout since jumping around on concrete can’t feel too great on the old feet, even with those cute little pawpads acting as shock absorbers.

Little did this sciurine know it when he went stepping out on a nice sunny day, but he managed to walk his adorable little self right into one of my Saturday Squirrel posts!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. that could be a new owlympig event: squirrel walking… maybe they could replace it with dressage riding :o)

    • That would make the Olympics exciting enough for me to actually watch… especially if it was combined with possum heaving (Which was a result of a Mad Libs contest I just entered on Goldfish’s blog)….

    He just needs some shades to complete that casual look.

  3. Do you have a camera set up somewhere? You get these wonderful pictures. I NEVER get these moments. Either I’m looking the wrong way, or my camera is not in hand. Great Saturday Squirrel.

    • If you follow squirrels around enough with a camera, you’re almost guaranteed to get a few really good pictures out of the deal. For example, the batch of photos I took at the park two weeks ago amounted to 370 raw pictures…. which I pared down to about 50 that I saved… and of those 50, I might use 10 of them as Saturday Squirrels. If the park weren’t loaded with the little buggers, I might walk for hours without getting anything worth showing off…

    You know, I don’t think I have seen a squirrel just walking. Something to ponder. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  5. Interesting as well as cute. Reminds me of the one time I saw a picture of a croc walking on two legs. He wasn’t what you can call cute though like your squirrel. ❤

    That’s adorable! In all my years of squirrel watching, I don’t think I’ve seen one walk so upright like that.

  7. Happy Tuesday.

    Oddly enough, I heard this track on the radio earlier today:

Jabber Away...
