Magic Fingers

I’d flip you off if I had an odd number of fingers…

Squirrels are cute.

Close ups of squirrels are even cuter.

This close up also gives a pretty good view of those long, sharp fingers that squirrels have which allows them to velcro to trees.  They look a bit creepy when featured prominently, but without those special tootsies at the end of all four appendages, squirrels would be able to do the amazing and entertaining acrobatics that they treat us to!

This week’s Saturday Squirrels wins our Fickle Fingers of Fate award!  And his arm fur appears to be a little…. green?

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Awww.
    That’s a great shot…. moldy green arm and all.

  2. Hmm……mold……I thought “A moving squirrel gathers no moss” ??? Oh wait – that’s stones isn’t it. Well one thing is for sure – he’s NOT giving you the finger in this photo!!

  3. These fingers are so important for climbing, defending, eating, all their life almost depends on them I think the green color is from grass he has been digging.

    You too! And squirrels are cute – and smart!

  5. Be careful Mister Squirrel. Doesn’t green algae causes arthritis on front digits? At least it isn’t Cheetos dust which can be REALLY toxic. 🐿

    After watching a squirrel spend the longest time rummaging through my zucchini plant the other day, I’m surprised we don’t see more squirrels with green legs! I wonder what this little cutie has been digging around in?

    The only other animal I have seen with green fur was a sloth in Costa Rica. I noticed a bit of the green on the bridge of his nose too. Hm… maybe it was something he ate?

    I have one that uses those talented appendages to hold onto the maple’s trunk and bridge over to the bird’s bath for a cool drink. When the dogs spot him it’s amazing how quickly he can whip himself up and place his front feet onto the trunk, and then it’s up, up, and away! He must have massively strong abdominals too. 😉
