bronyaur1: Red squirrels are also the biggest assholes of the squirrel world.


That's grey squirrels. They're mean. If there's not food in the bird feeder, they will come up to the front door, ring the doorbell, and tap their foot until you give them cash or food stamps. Sometimes they'll take a menthol cigarette, but they're not happy, and they'll put it out on your window when they're done.

So much fail in this headline. According to TFA, red squirrels are loners, they abandon their young early to move a couple houses down, and they will fight eachother to establish and maintain territory. The article actually says that the mother is giving her young a head start by abandoning them.

Is that subtard's take on 'better long term planning?' Abandoning the young so they are stronger as adults?

Sounds like Chicago/Baltimore to me. I wouldn't call the crackhead who feeds her kid mountain dew and parks them in front of Bebe's Kids a 'good longterm planner'.

But hey, you got the green, subtard. Who cares if you twisted the logic all around and the mods were too lazy/stupid to notice.

/Then again, the headline is good troll-bait.

When they moved into my neighborhood in Michigan, they even scared away the previous tyrants of the bird feeder, the blue jays.

It was weird. I'd never seen them before and then these little, mean red squirrels showed up one winter and took over the back yard.

A red squirrel will steal your nuts then come around later and say he heard that someone stole your nuts.

Red squirrels climb trees like this . . .

Ah, redneck delicacies.

They chewed my phone lines, screen door, window screen, garage door weatherstripping, mouse bait, and some trim all within 48 hours. Fark those guys.

They really are assholes. Nothing more annoying than having a red squirrel follow you through their territory screeching and screaming the whole time.

Is that a red squirrel or a gray squirrel? I can't tell really. I know not all red squirrels have tall hairy ears.

It's like when old people give their house to one of their children and move to Boca Raton.

Did you decide to only read half the article? The mother leaving the plot of land to take up residence two plots over was only one example. It also mentions this:

"Another habit exclusive to breeding mothers was the takeover and defense of a second midden in the fall, which the mother would then give to a pup the following year."

"Related females actually share nests on cold nights, then go back to their own territories when it warms up."

*fap*

That is THE Red Squirrel. I believe we are talking about just regular red squirrels here.
