Yes, I am hanging. So what? by woxys Yes, I am hanging. So what? by woxys
Wild crazy Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris, Veverka obecná) from ZOO Nuremberg, Germany :D

Story of the photo: I visit ZOO Nuremberg very rarely, but almost everytime I get there, I see this red squirrel on the same place, so I guess it is always the same animal. This time, the cutie got crazy - it was close to me, just above my head and it was TALKING with a voice of a snarrling cat, saying ,,MÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ!" all the time. Crazy!


Gift for my best friend *Allerlei :hug:

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)
Location: Europe, Asia
Size: 23 cm long body + 20 cm long tail weight: up to 340 g
Diet: seeds, nuts, fungies, berries, but also bird eggs
Conservation status: Least Concern
Interesting facts: although they are called RED, red squirrels can have also brown or even almost black coats. Belly is white | although red squirrels are not endangered right now, American grey squirrel, which got to Europe, can be a danger for them, as grey squirrels are able to eat also acorns (red squirrels are not able to feed on acorns), so they have easier life in Europe and they are a serious competition for native Red squirrel. Also, they carrie an illness, which is fatal for Eurasian red squirrels. Grey squirrels caused serious decrease of number of Red squirrels in UK | red squirrels can reach 7 years in the wild | female squirrel can give a birth two times a year – they can have 2-6 babies | squirrels are evil! (now let’s see, who really read this description ;D)

The Schönbrunn garden in Vienna quite literally swarms with these, and they are not afraid. They eat right in your hand and even sometimes climb on people ^^. This one is very cute :D

So that's what the red squirrel looks like.

Here in the US I have seen some grey squirrels with a bit of the red squirrel color mixed in their fur.

I don't see squirrels as evil. I like them and find them amusing to watch, several years ago I had the privilege to hand feed one a few peanuts. He ate them right next to me, the last one I gave him he carried away with him, most likely to his nest.

Ooo, SQUIRREL! And you can clearly see it's feet too:) I wish I saw this a few weeks back, because I was trying to find a good clear picture of what their feet looked like so I could get the front paw on the squirrel I was painting right. I ended up leaving it hidden behind a flower XD

squirrels are evil? lol I got a cypress fox squirrel. He is going to be living in my tree as soon as the cold leaves. I got pictures on my page of him. Do you know if its illegal to keep this breed of squirrel cuz i cant find anything saying it is but i have found that this particular breed in florida is threatened. It does say that they live up to 7 years in the wild and can live up to 18 in captivity which is pretty cool. Nice shot by the way ^_^

Now, I love squirrels. I've been feeding our front yard family of 5 peanuts and corn. They have made a nest in our tree out front. And come by and visit me on my window seal while I'm working on my easel.
However, their are some people in my neighborhood that like to shot them with b-b guns. They call them nasty rodents, rats with furry tails and other nasty names. I find them to be highly entertaining and comical. But who's to say they may be planning to take over my yard. Oh no! I need to watch out! [link]

fact, that some people have lot of views still does not allow you to copy you your "begging for points" message under their work. It is RUDE.

I'm just saying you should feel honored that you are getting so much publicity for your work even is its random comments that have no purpose to you. besides its easy just to ignore others like me. it was a random act with no real purpose behind it except for seeing how the currency link works.
