Of course they watch what they eat: their eyes are above their mouths after all.

    I like how they just threw a prairie dog in just for fun… plus that last photo looks super photoshopped. The shadows are all weird.

    It’s sad that the blogger is useless recognizing prairie dogs.

    the last one is photoshopped, you can see the artefacts of the content-aware fill in the background!

    They don’t care that we’re laughing at them.

    My poodle is 13 and has lost 1/2 a step. She would just love to meet their fat asses in the middle of the yard. She is like a bass fisherman, catch and release after weigh in and photos, un harmed. Hobart

    Prairie dogs are members of the squirrel family. I’m glad to see that none of our red squirrels are over-eating. Hooray for the reds!

    that last one is definitely photoshopped, but I think all they did was enlarge the squirrel that was sitting there. that thing is the size of a raccoon!!!!

    in any case these little rascals are cute!! made me smile.

    A fat squirrel once peed on my head, and I know it was on purpose. He laughed while doing it. He used to tease my cats unmecifully. But, he was so cute, I couldn’t hold it against him. Now, I have a squirrel that lives on the tree outside my bedroom window. He’s very skinny and I’m worried about him, so I keep putting out nuts and stuff for him. My landlord gets pissed because he thinks I’ll attract opossums and trash pandas. I don’t care. I like them too.

    These squirrels are the cutest! I love them all. I wish that they could all come to live in my yard.

    I was so sad when we moved into our 1st house and realized that there weren’t any squirrels because the neighborhood was too new and the trees were too small for the nests. That was almost 10 years ago and now there is s healthy Variety of squirrels and other rodents.

    Some of them look fat and happy, a few are like
    “How did I let it come to this”
    I bet In urban environments they’re eating
    A lot of people food and that’s contributing to it
    Some are fat others morbidly obese

    Hey, if you look closely, you’ll see that the squirrel in the last one was shopped from the one about 10 pics above it.

    Love these pictures. I didn’t realize how long their “fingers” are until I saw some baby squirrels.

    NO SQUIRREL that is as FAT as these are could EVER survive in the wild or even in a city setting outside of living in a HOUSE with HUMANS! These creatures couldn’t MOVE quickly enough to get away from a PREDATOR! IF a human allowed these animals to get this large, that is ANIMAL CRUELTY! I just don’t GET people!

    CarolynRD – I highly doubt all of these squirrels are being fed by humans (directly) I am sure there is some dumpster diving going on but that is hardly the human’s fault/animal abuse. I have a lot of squirrels in our neighborhood I see running around with trash and all of which are pretty chunky with no human intervention. It is a natural process for animals to put on and store more fat in the fall/winter to combat the cold and store up some extra fat if they run out of food. In the summer they will loose their fat because they are running around more outside.

    I can also say for a personal experience (I have a squirrel – he fell out of tree as a baby and abandoned by the mother. He was very badly injured, and can not be released in to the wild). He gains quite a bit of weight in the winter and then looses it all in the spring and I give him less food in the winter and more in the summer. Their bodies just naturally put more weight on in the winter (cold and lack of exercise).

    CHUNKY, BUT LOVE THEM.

    I love squirrels no matter what they weigh! You know they have a sweet tooth because I’ve seen them eat Ho hos, donuts, peanut butter crackers, snickers bars, etc.!!!

    One of these squirrels looks like a nursing Mom, so, I guess she could have an excuse!

    On a different note…my backyard chipmunks just came out of hibernation and they are just as tiny and fast as they were last fall and I need to buy some peanuts soon! They are driving my cats around the bend!
