The big, fluffy tails of squirrels are a big part of what makes squirrels the amazing creatures they are. They use them for a variety of purposes, from keeping cool and dry, to signaling other squirrels, to even helping to balance themselves while doing those death defying aerial maneuvers.
And of course, sometimes they can get captured in pretty amusing positions.
This squirrel’s doing his best to help you learn about the Pythagorean theorem by bending his tail at a firm 90 degree angle. You could use the end of his tail as a stool if you wanted to.
He could be imitating those “slap bracelets” that will bend in a shape exactly like his tail.
Perhaps he’s a squirrel of the 80’s and still has a can of Aqua Net in his nest that he liberally used to glue his tail in place?
Or maybe this is how squirrels “walk like an Egyptian.”
Before this week’s cute Saturday Squirrel finds a way to flip me off with his tail, I’ll stop with the silly references now…
Have a great weekend everyone!
