We’ve all seen animals use their much more limber physiology to orally groom themselves in rather private places before. As more civilized and spinally challenged humans, we tend to look on at this seemingly preverted bestial practice with equal parts disgust, bemusement, and yes….. even jealousy. As awkward as it might be to admit to, what person wouldn’t…… well, indulge in this naturally given gift of self pleasure if we could manage this contortionist maneuver without damaging our precious vertebrae.
This photo of Saturday Squirrel self gratification should also answer one of the most frequently searched questions that brings people to my blog in the first place… “Do squirrels come out at night?” Of course they don’t! Grey squirrels are diurnal… and maybe this is the reason why they never have to leave the nest at night.
Have a great weekend everyone! And please don’t throw your backs out….
