The Fattest Squirrel You’ve Ever Seen Feasting on Pumpkin

Squirrels are often seen as playful and agile creatures, but this squirrel in question is anything but agile.

This might just be the fattest squirrel that you’ve ever seen, and of course, it’s busy feasting on a snack: a delicious pumpkin.

I think we can all attest to having snack cravings (and giving into them) – with all certainty, this obese squirrel knows exactly what we’re talking about.

But even if they’re weak for snacks, these rodents’ intelligence shouldn’t be overlooked.

Squirrels are more than just a pretty face. Studies have shown that squirrels are capable of complex problem-solving.

How Clever Are Squirrels?

Interestingly, squirrels often perform deceptive behaviors, such as pretending to bury a nut while keeping it in their mouth, to throw off potential thieves.

One of the most astonishing aspects of squirrel intelligence is their long-term memory.

Their Impressive Long-Term Memories

Remarkably, they remember where they’ve hidden their food stashes, which can number in the hundreds.

Clearly, this is a suburban squirrel who knows just how to score snacks from humans.

Seeing as it’s probably Halloween, and judging by its size, this is not the first pumpkin it’s attacked in the neighborhood.
