Little Sqwerl Fella doin’ his very best audition for the next Tarantino movie.

From the Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation FB.


  1. The hind paws! JUST SO CUTE! By the way I love squirrels….. Why do people get so angry about them all the time! We have one that like our bird feeder more than the birds but we don’t really mind him at all.

  2. Chipmonkersons?

  3. i don’t think chipmonkersons have floofy tailios like that…

  4. Nope! The most excellent Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation Facebook Page says,

    “Behold my fierce Jiu-Jitsu skills!”
    “When baby ground squirrels feel threatened, they roll up into this little defensive posture. It’s not something we see tree squirrels do but for ground squirrel babies it’s second nature, happening most often when they arrive and are getting their initial health check. It doesn’t last long. The moment the babies realize food is at hand, they feel so much better. You’re safe here, little one.”

    Looks more like “Booga-booga-booga!” than “Hai-YAH!”

  6. Being a non-violent person with a “performance” hobby, my first thought was “jazz hands!”

  7. I guess that makes me a star wars geek.. I was thinking – “these are not the acorns you’re looking for… move along”

    I thought of Sally O’Malley — “I’m 50! 5 — 0 FIFTY!”

  9. It’s a California Ground Squirrel. You can see more of them on Coast & Canyon’s fb page since it’s baby season right now.

    *Squeaky Voice*

  11. Smartypants says:

    Skwerl is trying to hypnotize us – “you are getting v-e-r-y s-l-e-e-p-y”!

  12. “Huzzah!”

    I was just skipping through some blog posts from my favorite blogs… and I saw this post on CuteOverload and thought about my best friend Hailey… Kung Fu master of Fort Doge!
