Hunting for treasure
Monkey nuts for a monkey!
Sparky on my stoep
Sparky the squirrel regularly stops by our stoep and looks for us. When we see him, we throw a few nuts out. He grabs one and immediately runs off to bury it, then comes back for more.
Why do we not leave some nuts out for him? Because a large rat has also been stopping by!
In the second photo you can see that Sparky hunts for the nut by scent. It is right there in front of him, but he still sniffs it out.
My long-time followers will notice one very important thing in the photos.
Yes! The stoep is wet!
We have had a little rain lately and even if it only drizzles, it may do so for a few hours, which all adds up. The lawn particularly is very happy!
