It’s A Twister!

Where there’s a tail, there’s a squirrel…… maybe.

I love tails.  They’re one of the neatest parts of any animal, and it’s almost a shame evolution decided somewhere along the line that we humans didn’t need the extra appendage.

Squirrels are quite famous for their big, bushy tails.  Even though the squirrel tail is basically the exact same as what you’d find on their rat cousins, you’d never realize that since it’s completely buried underneath all of that thick, bristly fur.  The tail is a big part of what helps to make the squirrel stand out for its cuteness, and given how flexible the squirrel tail is, they can often use their caboose to amuse us as well.

You can’t really see the squirrel in this photo, but you can certainly spot that tail… which is corkscrewed into a twisty, furry flag that proudly waves from high above for all of Sciurine Nation.  I’d like to thank this week’s Saturday Squirrel for proving that the coin doesn’t always need to come up heads in order to get a super cute squirrel photo for your weekly amusement…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Happy weekend to you too, ES.

  2. That is a particularly fine tail if I do say so myself! I love how they wave them to warn their friends of danger, and use them as umbrellas in the rain, and use them as well as a “sweater” to wrap around themselves in the cold. They are masters of the “multi-use” tail for sure.

  3. Such a great shot! Maybe there is a whole squirrel. Tales are were usefull, our world would be totally different if having a tail like monkey.

    My husband has a tail – really! He has a little nub at the end of his spine plus some fur on his shoulders. Half man, half beast. 🐺

    He probably thinks he’s well hidden behind that leaf.

  6. I knew I was missing something important. I NEED A BIG, FLUFFY TAIL!

  7. Bottle brush squirrels?! Whoa…
    So there are coffee mugs in squirrel-land that need cleaning? ☕️
