“On almost a daily basis while living in a country-like environment, squirrels abound, performing numerous activities,” says Linn Smith. “One of their cutest behaviors occurs when two of them race up and down trees, seemingly trying to outdo each other with ability and speed. Witnessing their various feats, one watches in awe of the enormous performances they can accomplish.
“One day, two tree squirrels were involved in this type of agility and rapidity when one of them had to take a break. With one hand barely touching a branch and standing on only two legs, the squirrel easily balanced itself and surveyed what route would be its next possible move before proceeding onward while playing its game.”
