This squirrel looks pretty happy. You know why he’s so happy? He’s got a little secret. You see, he’s not quite as normal as he seems. Check out his tails. Yes, I said tails… plural! Dafuq!?!? What kind of nuclear reactor has this squirrel built his nest in? There’s two tails there… plain as day! I’m pretty sure this squirrel didn’t actually have twin tails when I took this photo… how could I not notice that? This seems to be a case of double exposure due to some really fast tail wagging. One of my old time (and sorely missed) followers The Pensive Squirrel used his knowledge of photo processing to pose his theory on how this strange illusion happened when I first posted this in my Saturday Squirrel feature five years ago. Real or not, it’s still a rather amusing and befuddling photo!
