It is amazing how much they can stuff in their mouth. Happy Silly Tuesday!

I think this squirrel had better eat this nut before Scout gets out in the garden. 5*

Careful, he will be moving in too. Nicely captured

@grouser: So I went inside the shed and looked around and there is an opening at the top where the roof meets the wall of the shed just like before. I guess it was for ventilation. Who knows? But I need to get someone to attach some chicken wire over these openings in the back and the front. I told those guys who built it that I wanted it to be squirrel proof. Guess they don't have those kinds of problems.

Squirrels are one of the most pert, attractive looking creatures. They are very hard to beat.

So cute....
I am now wondering..is that new shed of yours really squirrel proof ?

28 May 2019 3:34pm

@Devi: I doubt it! See my comment above to Grouser!

I folded it over to make a double layer, so the holes are really small and just used a strong staple gun to attach it. Good luck

This made me laugh. I was always amazed by how much a chipmunk could stuff in it's mouth but have never seen a squirrel do it, shell and all. Happy Silly Tuesday!

There is a video of a squirrel stuffing its cheeks and my 10 yr old granddaughter cracks up every single time she watches it.

Well caught and that's quite mouthful or should I say pouchful.

May be a tin sheet with holes would be better. The chicken wire will be bitten by their strong teeth and stand no chance !!
