I Love Fat Squirrels

I don't know why, but I am very interested in finding and photographing fat squirrels. Most of the squirrels I see are pretty svelte but I know from google image search that there are fat squirrels out there and today, after months of being on the lookout, I finally found and took a decent photo of a fat squirrel. Share your fat squirrel photos here, please.

When I was a kid we used to get a lot of fat squirrels hanging out and building nests because we had a big yard full of trees and no dogs or cats around to harass them. In the summer the really fat ones would just lie on their back or stomach on a branch of a tree because it was too hot for them to move their fat selves around the way the other squirrels could.

I do not mean to fat shame these squirrels, btw.

I Love Fat Squirrels And I Cannot Lie


adding "fat" to the search terms is unnecessary.

The greedy animals have seen their waists balloon due to a mild winter that has seen them feasting on an abundance of snacks and food left on the frost-free ground.

feels a bit judgemental, who's to say when a squirrel is being "greedy"?

Not fat, per se, but I can't resist the opportunity to paste this gem:

i really like fat squirrels, for aesthetic reasons, but also just because it seems like for a wild animal being able to get to being fat is pretty auspicious
