Check out this video of a squirrel in a food coma.
Before anybody comments with the same sentiment, we want to acknowledge that this Northern Flying Squirrel is probably a little worse off than some would guess, and its catatonic state isn’t a condition we’d wish upon any wild creature.
The YouTube user irandyman who shared the video said as much in the description: “Relax…it ran up the tree as fast as squirrels do after it woke up!”
All the same, we can all relate to the feeling after a big holiday meal, when we’ve stuffed ourselves to the gills and simply don’t want to move.
Watch the video and imagine the diet this squirrel will need after this eating session:
Squirrels are notorious bird feeder raiders, and it’s a constant battle to keep them away from the precious seeds that attract beautiful songbirds as much as they attract these furry little guys.
