    Friendly squirrel

    I have recently visited Washington DC and while taking a walk on Constitution Avenue spotted this little guy . This young squirrel was very friendly, kept following me and other people. It would come near my foot and start rubbing against it like a kitten. I know I should not have petted it but I could not resist.












    And then we fed it with a banana!


    Here it is starting to lie down while munching on the banana

    oh wow thats rare for a little one like that to come up to a human and trust it enough to let you pet it. But none the less amazing i had one follow me along a fence when i was trying to get to a buss stop silly little thing would run back and forth jump on the ground and run around in circles before going back up the fence/brickwall

    Well it was hard to resist not to... Besides squirrels are almost domesticated anyway, look at them around college campuses. I had one recently sitting a meter in front of me on the grass and waiting until I finish my sandwich

    The squirells in Madison Square Park are fat, docile and pretty cute I gotta say... people feed em all the time, no usual predators. They got it pretty good.

    There is always a risk of rabies, but you can pretty much tell.
    I do like them better than filthy pigeons and people feed those all the time!
