They don't seem to bother the squirrels but I never asked one if it hurt.

They're a fly under their skin that hatches and then the sore heals. Usually this happens in the hot summer.

A Kiddie Story for the boys and girls here.....

"Stupid squirrels have a hangover and didn't even see this delicious peanut!":



"Gotta work fast...some of those filthy rodents have started carrying shotguns."



"Now for a quick getaway and I've beat them again!"


"Dumb birds! While he got that tiny one-nutter I got me a triple-nutter!"


"Triple the pleasure, triple the fun!"


Squirrels have called in a Tree Doctor to find why the sap stopped flowing?

Good luck!


That's all folks!

Regards!

My wife sent me this picture a few minutes ago



along with the words "On doors in Science Hall. I guess killer squirrels are still a problem here."

Personally I've often found their squirrels to be friendly and willing models {much better than the guy I do feed in our own backyard}

killer squirrels is right

we ran out of peanuts

two days later
three of the neighborhood tree rats rolled a smart car and ate the groceries inside
luckily no one was injured but we learned our lesson

Yes, I was there too. As I've said before, this land is so fertile that only a totally inept animal would fail to make it on his own, so the food I provide is merely supplemental. The squirrel who lives in my neighborhood takes the peanuts if the birds don't get to them first, but shows no interest in being friendly. The campus where that sign was put up is still littered with walnuts and other tree fruit (*), so I'm guessing that they'll have more than sufficient food until the fall harvest regardless of what the students do.

(*) see the fifth {last} image in post #1225 on pg 82

just wanted people to know about the "discussion" so we may not have to go through it again

re: your photo

at first glance, I would call "fowl" because that seed pod looked like beef jerky



but now I see that it looks like some in my back yard

nice series of photos

that last shot is one of my all-time favorites

is the seed pod from a honey locust or a Kentucky coffeebean?
i'm not astute enough to tell the difference (one is poisonous)

I believe a Kentucky coffee bean because there are no thorns.

however I am no expert

Otis said you are damn lucky to still be alive....and he also said..."Don't you forget it!"

One of the most traumatic things a squirrel can face is losing one of his nuts......I can only imagine the stress that causes!

"I feel like a 'lesser squirrel' since I lost a nut."

Gone dead over here???

Well, I checked my mail and this may be why......

_________________________________________________
"Can we talk?"


"Until we squirrels get sap flowing again there will be NO POSTING in the Squirrel Thread. Those that violate this ban will be hunted down by our Death Squads and treated like that Russian dog. We know where you live and our first warning will be our last. Don't be a fool, we are billions strong!"

Signed
Angry Squirrel


If you got one of these threats, just disregard it totally! I checked with Otis and he said that is insanity.....squirrels need more handsome squirrel shots posted......not less! He has a warrant out for that renegade squirrel that sent the PM and will show him what "cutting your nose off to spite your face" is all about. I think we may soon have a headless squirrel around here!

So get back out there, the coast is clear, shoot away and post them here!

Regards!

Rumor has it that the local law enforcement want to talk to Otis to see what he knows about this:

They did come by....Otis sent out Lawyer Louie Squirrel and he pleaded the 5th for Otis. Then Louie gave a lecture on the Squirrel Constitution and how to protect yourself from the law....I've heard it all before so I s didn't stick around. When Louie gets all worked up he spews out a lot of saliva....you don't want to be near for sure!

Most speakers keep a glass of water handy for speaking...Louie keeps peanuts!


Regards! ... I hope Photolady wasn't scared away, someone tell her it is safe to come back!....just bring a jar of sap!
