Or, even just this one fantastic little guy, dubbed “Ginger Ninja” who can jump great distances. He’s featured in the U.K. Daily Mail.
If a human could jump the equivalent distance (for our body size), it would be like leaping over a semi truck — from front to back. A useful skill indeed, but we humans are doing pretty good these days, compared to a lot of other wildlife, so we’re satisfied with just admiring the far cuter red squirrel a leaping.

We here at Squirrels Squirrels Squirrels are huge Muppets fans (we heartily endorse The Henson Experience at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, btw), and so we got a kick out of reading this Cinema Blend post on a suggested scene in the latest Muppets movie, in which Miss Piggy spoofs Katy Perry. It didn’t make the cut, sadly:
The premise? Director Nicholas Stoller explains: “Miss Piggy singing “I Kissed a Squirrel and I Liked It,” while a procession of squirrels lines up to lock lips with her. Stoler explained that “more and more squirrels are lining up to kiss her, and she’s getting weirded out.” If parodying “I Kissed a Girl” was too risque, they could always have gone with “California Squrrls.” “
Is this not a terrific photo of a pissed-off ground squirrel? This is a Richardson’s Ground Squirrel.
