    Haha - I swear they did! :lol:

    I've even noticed they have their own personality too. The one squirrel had no problem coming to my hand / feet / wherever, as the other squirrel was a little unsure and would only take one peanut at a time.

    lol I guess they are like cats, some are very shy and careful while some are bold and careless haha
    say have you taken any "family" pic of those guys I mean so far we have only seen them one by one in those pics would be nice to see them fighting over nuts or just sit there together munching on the nuts :D

    They don't eat or travel as family. I tried to get a picture of the two of them, but they chase each other and make a weird sound, almost like the one is in the others' territory. They are too fast, and it would make a crappy picture so I didn't even try. lol.

    ah so they are a bunch of cute loners :D sounds like you need a faster camera lol jk well it would be awesome if you could capture those guys in action though. btw how often do you feed them? I hope you aren't spoiling them and making them fat :mrgreen:
    I didn't know squirrels are so territorial, thought they are always in groups or have huge families kinda like mice. guess i'll need to watch more nature shows lol

    Haha - they do... I've got a soft hear for these guys.

    :lol: Yep! I get that a lot, when people look at my shoes. When I bought them they came with both the laces... I couldn't pick which one I wanted to put on, so I chose one of each - haha. I was wondering if anyone would notice ;)


    I don't really need a fast camera, all I'd have to do is boost up the shutter speed and use a flash. I was content with the way I was doing it. I think they are territorial to an extent. I saw them both kind of beside each other doing their own thing, but as soon as they were done what they were doing, they started to chase each other or run away from one another. They would also make this "squirrel sound" at each other. It's really hard to capture them in a photo together because they run and jump all over the place. You think they are going to go straight and then suddenly they leap to the right, then to the left. They got them trees figured out like I have the back of my hand figured out.

    lmao sounds like you've got some challenging photos to take. I guess they are just like kittens always on the move and only stand still when they eat or curious about something lol so do you ever just stand still or sit somewhere and study them? I know I would course its both amusing and interesting lol oh btw have you seen any of their babies? or at least smaller ones lol I am sure they are even crazier than the adult ones

    lol at the shoe laces well they actually do look good course both of the colors match your shoes haha I've never had shoes that come with two pair of laces of different colors
