Loyal Squirrel Defends Friend From Crows

Sometimes nature is heartbreaking.

A squirrel was run over and killed by a vehicle. Its loyal friend keeps scavenger crows from attacking its corpse. This just makes me choke up a little bit.

If the video above doesn’t work, here’s a link to its page on Youtube.

There are some links to more of the squirrel’s protective nature in this post about a mother squirrel protecting her baby from a dog.

Nuttier Than A Squirrel Turd


I spotted this on Saturday in Paris, Tennessee and I think it applies to me.

Squirrel Anarchy

Hear some Squirrel Power.

Squirrel punk rock at its finest.

Anarchy ensues.

Squirrel Appreciation Day

In case you didn’t know, today – January 21 – is Squirrel Appreciation Day.

All hail the Squirrel Queen.

In honor of the day, drop a few extra snacks in the park and slow down when you see one of my legion strolling in the street.

Or check out these squirrels of the World Wide Web.

Personally, I will seize the day.

Thanks to my pal Badger for the original drawing.

Merry Christmas from Squirrel Queen

Here’s hoping everyone who stops by here has had a Merry Christmas and a wonderful day no matter the holiday they celebrate.

Wobbly the Dancing Squirrel

It’s Wobbly the Dancing Squirrel.

Actually, though, I believe it’s Wobbly the Squirrel with Parkinson’s Disease. Can squirrels get Parkinson’s?

This just doesn’t look normal to me.

Maybe he’s been eating fermented fruit like the drunk squirrel I posted another time.

Kung Fu Squirrels

Nature photographer David Slater has come across a dojo family of very aggressive squirrels in Etosha National Park, Namibia.

These members of my legion throw down with some nasty fu and fighting forms.

Metro has the full story and more Fight Club pics.

Here’s a little extra squirrel action for you. No stuffed real squirrels were harmed in the making of this video.
