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!

Unfortunatly it didn't survive the rescue. It is thought, that the action was to much stress.

Actually, he died of stress a few hours after his rescue (source: German newspapers). I'd rather not see this poor guy as the preview picture for this thread every now and then on BoredPanda.

yes, my friend saw that once. after a tree collapsed a squirrel mom had 2 bring 4 kinds 2 the new home on another tree nearby (thats y they build 10-15 nests just in case). After bringing them all 2 the new nest she got exhausted so deeply she just took a nap in the middle of the road just like that, n only after 10 minutes came back 2 actually move away n try 2 climb that tree 2 check the babies.
