What does Wauf think of squirrels?
Rats with fluffy tails.
they're jacked from climbing trees all day and enjoy the adrenaline buzz of near misses from cars to impress other squirrels. they are pests though.
You think you're special
They're cute but I like watching the blue jays bully them at my house.
>dog went after a squirrel
>it bit her toe and clung on
>she freaked the hell out
>went out there and started punching the squirrel in the stomach
>it was as firm as Arnold Schwarzenegger and the squirrel gave zero fucks
never realized how muscular they were
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Squirrels, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on your birdfeeder, and I have over 300 confirmed acorns.
basically what happened
how does it feel to hold a squirrel in your hand?
Bags of milky coins and salty sand.
You can feel his fat nuts on your palm
Like a rat but not as soft.
Squirrels are so GODDAMN STUPID. My dog taught me to hate them, and I am glad that he did.
If my dog wants to chase squirrels does that mean he loves them or hates him?
And is Skwerlock Holmes a cute nickname for him?
Thanks in advance.
They're vermin. Worse than rats. I don't go out of my way to run over them but I also don't slow down for them like I do for everything else.
However, if someone has one that's a pet I will still pet it.
how? they don't bother anyone where I am
They get into attics and chew wires even worse than rats do.

I freakin' love 'em. I used to have an even mix of grey and black squirrels in my neighbourhood. Now they are all black ones.
One thing I get a kick out of is every morning i'll go out on my 3rd floor balcony while brushing my teeth. More often than not i;ll see one run along the phone lines which are level with my deck and about 20 feet away. I'll also drop unshelled peanuts on them when they're foraging around the ground below me.
A great channel to just watch and relax.
If you repeatedly feed a squirrel like this will they become dependent on you? Isn't that a bad thing?
A squirrel drowned in my koi pond and its rotting corpse almost poisoned my fish. They also dig the dirt out of my flower pots and try to drop acorns on me. Fuck squirrels.
Why is he black
The property values of the neighborhood trees plummets when the black squirrels move in.
he's got a bone to pick
He's a squigger
How big is that fucking thing? I thought that was a cat at first.
Probably pretty chunky.
They think the black ones mostly come from hybrids between grey and fox squirrels. Fox squirrels are bigger than grey squirrels.
Let's settle this once and for all
Greys or reds?
How do we save our redbros? The Greymogging must be stopped
i like both and believe with sensible conservation efforts and land management they can coexist in the same country
I heckin love squirrelarinos.
What makes them so fucking cute? The tail? Or their inqusitive demeanor?
Big ass squirrel looks like a fren.
Why is it 5 different colors
Indian giant squirrel. They look like escapees from a fever dream.
They glow pink so yes. Yes they are.
See the colors of those plants behind it?
Pretty similar. Couldn't be related though, surely.
I love squirrels
>leave out food to attract cute wild animals
>sperg out when it attracts the wrong cute wild animals
I saw a red squirrel for the first time today. Cute little tree-rat.
I feed birds so squirrels are my mortal enemy. I shoot them with air rifle when I can but they're wary of me so I don't get that many. Like a few in a month. I feed them to my ravens - not my pets just birds that hang around and see a dead squirrel as a fine meal. Sometimes they fight over it its pretty fun to watch.
This has never been funny
I don't even get it
lol low IQ
Do you get it?
I saw my second black squirrel a week or two ago. It was behind Beverly Hills Middle School in Delaware County, PA. It's funny to me, cuz that's a Black 'hood lmao.
There wouldn't be babies right now, would there? It was tiny and cute.
They make a tasty stew
Squirrels live in my neighbours roof. They crawled in through the gutter and set up base there. I've told the neighbours but they're renting the place and don't care about the house.
In the spring the had a bunch of babies and it was cool seeing them running around playing on the roof shingles. and in the winter they all must curl up together. I think I've seen 5 or 6 of them hanging out at once. I don't feed them, but they are still pretty cute.
I throw handfuls of peanuts into my backyard for them. Those homosexualass bluejays keep stealing them though. Total bluejay death.
red squirrels are based, other, not so much
I used to have a lot of red squirrels but they disappeared. Maybe climate change?? Turkeys too, I had a lot for years that would visit me but this year they kind of dwindled and never showed up after the spring. I hope both come back in winter.
strange how rats are seen as disgusting and ugly and carrying diseases living in overpopulated slums and in a negative light but squirrels are seen as cute and positive living in the green trees and drinking morning dew
rats are actually significantly smarter and can be kept as pets, also cleaner
squirrels are full of worms and are pests
Squirrels are incredibly intelligent though.
That's not intelligence. That's stupidity, with style!
Squirrels don't cohabitate with people in urban environments to the degree rats do though. Any rodent's about as likely to be a vector as any other, but rats present a persistent threat throughout human history because of where they live and how they interact with people. Squirrels live in trees in the woods.
my parents house was infested with squirrels tbh. One even climbed behind the shower and build a big ass nest full of acorns. You could hear her skitter around if you banged on the shower wall lol
I'm a rat lover with five pet rats, but this is definitely correct. Rats teeth allow them to chew through concrete and create burrows in people's walls, invade pantries, etc. You'll find a lot more rat droppings in commercial kitchens, rarely squirrels. Squirrels kinda just invade rooftops. Rats also have evolved to eat pretty much the same exact diet as humans, so there's more incentive for them to invade urban areas and rummage through literal rotting garbage and sewers, giving them the reputation of filthy disease carriers.
They're both rats
But only one of them routinely sticks its filthy nose in people's stuff and deserves to test medicine
>but squirrels are seen as cute and positive
90% of people with bird feeders have an irrational hatred of the idea of squirrels eating from them.
my dad was this way and would shoot them. I don't get it. I found the squirrels just as entertaining to watch as birds. Especially funny since he bought "squirrel-proof" bird feeders but the squirrels would hang themselves upside down or plot some hilarious ways to get the seeds. How are they supposed to know it's not for them? The birds are just casually getting food, as are the squirrels, but apparently one deserves death?
Squirrels are practically as smart as birds. Rodents are incredibly intelligent. It's why they're able to mass produce. Incredible survival instincts.
I don't know about other types of squirrels, but grey squirrels display "theory of mind" thinking.
They watch their surroundings while they're foraging and burying their goodies. If they're being watched, they will fake bury their goods and move to a more secure location to actually bury it.
Also, whatever happened to the guy that made a squirrel thread every day with "ugly nibber" as the op?
hope they come back for my dad
What is the job of squirrel and what is the job of rats?
i dont respect them.
i think rats are better
I respect squirrels more than any non white human
