Greedy Squirrels!

Animals, Fauna, Photo Challenge

Growing up in India, the sight of squirrels is something that I am used to and I find them quite adorable 🙂 The sight of one climbing trees or running about with little pieces of food looking at humans suspiciously always makes me smile.

I particularly love their characterization in books and movies. Remember the squirrel who hangs out with Big Ears from the Noddy series? Or that squirrel from Ice age who is always hiding his nuts?

I wonder what goes through their little heads when they take off with their little treasures, their pretty eyes filled with suspicion? Do they think that their food may be stolen? Or are they just plain greedy and don’t want anybody to find out?

So I couldn’t help but laugh when I spotted these squirrels smuggling pieces of food much larger than themselves! Seriously, I bet that pizza and apple weigh more than the squirrel 🙂 Definitely made my day!!
