Squirrels Gone Wild

Squirrel on a trike

Actually, they are pretty domesticated around here thanks to Sam providing them an all you can eat buffet of peanuts and corn. It is, however, that time of year when our super sized squirrels get that crazed look in their eyes as they frantically search for the food that we leave on the deck for them. They are cute, but not the smartest of creatures. Can you believe the size of this guy? I guess this counts as his exercise for the day - you know, I like the way this guy thinks.

Well now ya'll do grow those squirrels pretty big up in them thar hills, don'tcha?

Good grief...I really don't know if I've ever seen a squirrel that fat! I'm sure my son's redneck former in-laws would be lookin' at this bad boy for their next family feast. lol

Oh my, that is one huge squirrel! I'd be kind of afraid of him. But then again, he is riding a tricycle. How cute is he?

Maybe that little guy needs to ride that trike around the block a time or two! Such a great photo!

He is huge! I have two that delight in chasing one another all over the backyard. It is quite comical. I put up a new bird feeder that they haven't yet figured out how to break into...
