Mohawk Squirrel

Tail? What tail?

Squirrels can do some amazing things with their bushy and very flexible tails… and I’ve covered tail oddities before in past editions of this series.  Here’s one I see often enough, but don’t think I’ve ever really pointed out before.  Check out how this squirrel has his tail tightly formed to the shape of his back on a slightly chilly autumn day.  From his shoulders all the way down to his rump, it almost looks like the squirrel doesn’t have a tail at all… but a spiky stripe of excess fur running right down the center of his back!  I have to admit, I love the idea of a badass squirrel mohawk.  Maybe those old ladies who try to chase the squirrels away from their birdfeeders will think twice about threatening this guy!  This Saturday Squirrel is a punk, and we mean that in the nicest possible way…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. He is a great punk, and the birds are not the only hungry out there, so everything is fine, if there is enough food for both, tested in our yard.

  2. Funny you mention this because we have always thought when a squirrel does that “back hugging with a tail” maneuver it DOES look like a Mohawk. Add some purple food coloring and voila – PUNKY THE SQUIRREL!

    He looks all coiled up, ready to pounce…

  4. That is a beautiful picture. The squirrel and the color of the oak leaves. Really lovely!

    • The Fall color was about as good as it gets here when I went to the park that day. Most of my photos from that day have some pretty wild color in them. But the squirrels hadn’t changed colors for the Fall yet…

  5. Do they make tail toupees for squirrels cuz that looks a bit suspicious to me. 🐿

  6. That is so funny. It does look like a mohawk! Wow. But look at those cute little squirrel hands and his precious face!
