Gigantor the Squirrel!!!

Furiends, I gotta serious problem over here. Some of you may have seen me mention gigantic squirrels invading my backyard lately. Well here are pictures of the King of Large Squirrels. His name is Gigantor, and mom thinks he is almost as big as me!

The evil!

Look at this massive creature! When he runs across our roof it sounds like a bowling ball!

Dis is the tree you've seen me stand next to many times. He's enormous!

He even tries to eat the birds suet!!!
BOL, he's all rolly-poly!

Every day dis mammoth creature tries to get into the bird feeder, and every day he fails. He's either not too bright, or he's testing it systematically for weaknesses. BOL!

As you can see, dis is squirrel proof - his weight closes the gate and he gets nothin'!
NOTHIN'! Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Soon the behemoth realizes he is foiled...
(the feeder is about 20 inches tall. So it looks like he is about 16 inches long NOT including his tail. OMD!!!)

and proceeds to lumber his bulky self up the feeder...


Almost there...

and up he goes...

Like I said, dis is a fairly big feeder. For a size comparison, here is a Red Bellied Woodpecker on it. Red Bellied Woodpeckers are no slouch of the bird world, I tell 'ya. If you've ever seen one, you know they are pretty big!!!

He haunts my dreams...


PS. As a side note, remember the painting of Nigel Buggers? You can now get prints of it and it help A Place to Bark dog rescue build their shelter!

Cloud that is one whooper you think it is pregnant? Oh I hope not that means lots more squirrels in your yard.

That Gigantor is SCARY! Maybe he is related to some of the squirrels that now live by us... when we moved we never realized we were moving into squirrel territory!

Good luck staying away from that big and nasty fellow Cloud!

Well something tells me that he is not going hungry for the winter!

Great picts. It's really hard to get good pictures of moving squirrels (and dogs!)

Unknown said...

OH MY!! That is one FAT squirel! Good news for you though, Cloud. I think being that fat lowers his life expectancy!!

He probably can't run as fast either. Maybe you can hire a longer legged friend to chase him down for you and you can eat him for dinner! LOL

Are any of your neighbours missing a khat or two?


Stella said...

Here is the deal, Cloud, keep packing the suet feeder with fatties and Gigantor will keep eating it, so he will be so huge he won't be able to walk and he will probably have clogged arteries so bad his brain will give up totally to dementia. Thats it! Goodbye Gigantor!

Or maybe he will just get bigger, and bigger, and bigger! hahahahaha

Beautiful squirrel! He (she) looks like he's had plenty to eat this year! Good to know the anti-squirrel feeders really work - even for a smart squirrel like Gigantor! Beautiful art.
