Straight Up

You’re gonna poke someone’s eye out with that!

This week’s Saturday Squirrel is the photo of the squirrel with its tail sticking straight up in the air that I mentioned I had a few weeks ago when I posted the photo of the right angle tail.

Enjoy this unusual looking sight, and have a great weekend everyone!

    That is unusual. Can’t say I’ve ever seen one before…

  2. That is truly impressive! Usually there’s a curly tip or at least a “question mark” in those tails but this guy is at attention……….full on.

  3. I’ve never seen that kind of flag 🏴‍☠️

  4. That is some tail! You have a good weekend too. 🙂

  5. Wow. Looks like he is ready to start spinning that tail to take off into the wild blue yonder.

    That looks so weird! Are you sure the squirrels in your area don’t have freakishly long tails?

    I hope Ody is feeling better today.

    • I wish I knew what he was doing when I took that picture. My assumption is that he was waving it back and forth, and I just happened to catch the moment it was completely straight… but there’s no motion blur at all.

      I posted an update on Ody, and he is doing well!

  7. I’ve never seen one with a straight up tail, but lately I’ve seen a few with ratlike tails — which I gather are probably the result of fighting with other squirrels. We have one wounded guy who manages to get a meal at our feeder. I think he’d have died otherwise. I’m rooting for him.

    • All squirrels have ratlike tails, but the rattiness usually shows better in the summer when their tail fur isn’t as thick. If it’s been hot and dry up there, you probably have a lot of rat tailed squirrels lurking about…

    I didn’t realise the tail was so long!
