Squirrel having lunch.
Not great pictures but still you can see this rodent. Squirrels can be trained to be hand-fed. Because they are able to cache surplus food, they take as much food as is available. Squirrels living in parks and campuses in cities have learned that humans are typically a ready source of food. They have sharp theets and sometimes considered pests because of their propensity to chew on various edible and inedible objects. But in the other hand Squirrels are generally clever and persistent animals, tell me about it, in Summer time they like to dig in the plants we put by the porch and drive me crazy, not to mention the time I planted my Tulips and awake with all of them out of the ground..... This one was having lunch with acorn nuts falling from the tree at the end of the Fall.
