If you think that all squirrels do all day is bury nuts, think again. Squirrels are far more complex creatures. They enjoy painting, playing Jenga, as well as sniffing flowers, or sipping hot tea with a nice view.

Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day and Bored Panda couldn't miss the opportunity to get a sneak peak into the whimsical every day life of our furry friends. So we compiled a nutty list of squirrels for you to choose the nuttiest ones! Did you spot one yourself? Upload your photos to the list!
