Skwerlio Finds Itself Wayyy Off the Beaten Trail

Woah, we cannot co-exist in the same era!

But look at us, we finally have proof that squirrels and dinosaurs were closer than ever thought.

Um, wow, you’re eating like there’s no tomorrow. Har, har, har.

Those are walnuts, you know, as in, dinosaur brain size.

So? Dinosaurs rely less upon brain size and more upon eating everything in their path!!!

Sender-Inner Kim B. used a remote camera to get these shots from the Bad Manors Squirrel Diner.

    Wavy Gravy wisely observed: You aren’t what you eat, you are what you don’t poop.

  3. Sasha's Mum says:

    T-Rex not eating walnuts — T-Rex omnivore. T-Rex using walnuts as squirrel bait. T-Rex not so stupid after all!

  4. Sasha's Mum says:

    D’oh, I meant “T-Rex carnivore,” obvy.

  5. Skwerlio: Curse your sudden and inevitable betrayal!

    Mine is an evil laugh!

  7. Did I just hear that squirrel say “Nuts!”?

  8. Proof that squirrels are smarter than every single character in the Jurassic Park movies.

  9. Welcome to Jurassic, ummmm, Patio!

  10. Hey, these are from a UStream Cam called Bad Manors Squirrel Diner. You can watch the squirrels come for the food live, and interact with the daily “set ups”.

  11. Two Jurassic Park super stars discuss their latest script over a bowl of nuts at Spago’s when suddenly they spy the “Paparazzi” photographing them from the kitchen.

  12. I didn’t reallize that there were wildlife centers that catered, literally, to teeny tiny smart-mouth dinosaurs. See ya later: I’m off on a road trip to this one.

  13. Oh, here I am stuck in the Mod Lounge. Why, I ask you, why? And there is no fudge in here. Or cute animals.

  14. There there. Have a walnut. *pats on head*

  15. Smiling skwerlio smartly cedes to stationary saurian.

  16. Very amusing. Poor squirrel. He came back later, right?

  17. “The brown acid that is circulating around us isn’t too good. It is suggested that you stay away from that. Of course it’s your own trip. So be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, ok?”

  18. Squirrel finally realized: “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear”.

  19. snorf!

  20. The squirrel has tiny t-rex arms too!

  21. I like to think of the t-rex standing there while the squirrel runs away as representing this interpretation of the K-T extinction, although walnuts as asteroids seems like a stretch.

  22. Yes I’m a bit confused. These are my photos from when I used to run the Bad Manors Squirrel Diner, which no longer exists. Now I volunteer at Coast & Canyon Wildlife which rehabs sweet little orphaned squirrel babies. You can see photos of those babies at

    This squirrel would rather eat nuts alone than to be eaten by a pint sized plastic
    coated predator.!!!!

  24. I think we should call it “your grave”!

  25. This is one of those duhn, duhn, DUHN moments!

  26. Haha, that squirrel looks totally freaked out. He has no idea what’s going on.

  27. ooooo, very good! Hadn’t thought of that one. Take a bow 260. You Rule! 😀

  28. Love these pics, especially the middle one. Squirrel is totally telling the dinosaur off.

  29. I may or may not have that dinosaur and may or may not act out a scene from Firefly with it often…*cough*

    Mayhaps he wants some walnuts!
