That is so cute.
Reminds me of my dogs when they find something "deliciously aromatic" to perfume themselves with!
Funny. Reminds me of a cat playing in catnip!
Maybe he has a headache or something and is trying to get rid of it. Never seen a squirrel do this before. Weird.
He was certainly putting on a show. Our border collie likes to go out and roll in the dirt when he is feeling itchy.
I thought we had some crazy squirrels around here, but none of ours act like this. It seems as if he is trying to scratch an itch.
We have some crazy squirrels here too... There are two who always chase each other up and down trees... They are fun to watch. You got a cute video of one of yours.Hugs,Betsy
Perfectly normal behavior for a young squirrel! They love the things they can do with their bodies. The first moment, he is doing what we call "sproinking". They jump and do 180* turns, and dash off at random. Its practice for the chase.
This is pretty normal behavior! He is enjoying being a squirrel!
I have never seen one act like that. Cute as he can be.
Reminds me of our dogs when they have an itch. But I see from Steve's comment that this is normal for squirrels; I've learned a new word today--"sproinking":)
I have a love/hate relationship with squirrels. :-) I love how silly they can be and observe this type behavior that you show today often. They are very comical little creatures but also destructive in the garden at times as well...
