Since Photobucket decided to take the day off yesterday and not give me access to my voluminous albums full of sciurine photography to adequately prepare my Saturday post, I had to settle for flipping through what I still had on my computer and stopped at this picture….
Is that squirrel chewing on the bark of that tree!?!?
Maybe, maybe not… but either way, don’t knock it until you try it. Chewing on willow bark is a great way to get some free salicylate acid in your body, which is the active ingredient in aspirin! Maybe this squirrel woke up with a hangover from eating too many beer nuts, or just had one of those headaches THIS BIG! This week’s Saturday Squirrel knows how to get around the high cost of medications and health insurance…
Have a great weekend everyone!
