caching

In addition to shamelessly running around naked and drinking from tiny coffee cups, squirrels spend a great deal of their time collecting and hiding (or caching) food. When in the presence of other squirrels, they’ve even been known to pretend to hide their food in one spot only to then go actually hide it somewhere else in hopes of preventing the competition from stealing their cache.

In this hilariously awesome video we meet Shannon Apple’s pet squirrel Wally, who is busy trying to bury a large nut in the fur of an extraordinarily patient Bernese Mountain dog named Jax. Wally makes a few valiant attempts to take advantage of Jax’s silky coat before hopping off to try his luck elsewhere. Good luck with that Wally!
