Considering how ubiquitous the squirrel is, it’s pretty amazing that we haven’t seen more of this: squirrel obstacle courses. Some enterprising — and not easily entertained — individuals have actually taken the time to create a bit of a puzzle for their backyard squirrels, and the squirrels have really taken to it. It’s a very interesting exercise in intelligence of the animals, as you can watch it learn from its mistakes and even try to come up with their own short cuts. We’re not sure which is more admirable, the lengths the squirrels go to get the nut, or the lengths humans go to get the laugh!
