There have certainly been a lot of squirrel antics around here lately! I am not sure where there in a walnut tree near us, but it must be close because the squirrels are snatching them up and bringing them into the Dinosaur Farm to feast on.
This one particular squirrel sat in the tree right above me and dropped the pieces of walnut right on me. Careless little guys, but still kind of cute, considering they are basically rats with bushy tails
Check out this gallery of a squirrel eating a walnut. There is a green layer of skin for it to bite off, then it has to crack the shell open and nibble the yummy insides. Click on the first image to view the full photos.
