"ehn, ehn.....aw screw eet!" ::lays down and naps with a bag of chips::

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:24 PM

I'm not "fat", I'm "fluffy"!!!

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:25 PM


 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:26 PM

what the heck is that?! Is that really a fat squirrel, or is it some other kind of rodent? (a pika...?)

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:33 PM

Holy porkslposion is right... and I thought I had fat squirrels in my backyard!

Meanwhile, it's PMS day over at the Rock Hyrax house...
"Let me tell ya something, mister - when you've borne 5 children and kept the house looking nice and made an effort to be a good hostess and a loving wife and a caring mother, then maybe your hips will be a little chunky too! So maybe I don't look like I did when I was 20, but if you can tell me when you think I have the time to primp and powder and work-out in between cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, picking up your dry cleaning and shuttling your kids all over town while you're at that oh-so-precious job of yours..."

I have just fallen off my chair. This creature's defense against predators...not running up a tree. It's more like, he looks at the fox and says, "You're kidding me, right, pipsqueak? Two bites o' me and your arteries are going to slam shut. I'm 65% fat. I make Wendy's Triple Bacon Cheeseburger look like health food."

I think there should be a new rule of cuteness: feet to body size ratio. How does this guy NOT break his teeny legs and feet??!

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:41 PM

He's not fat. He's big-boned!

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:43 PM

to second Courtney' question:
or is it a

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:50 PM

Bwah! He looks like he swallowed a bowling ball!

Maybe this is the guy who broke the hotdog eating world record yesterday.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:51 PM

omg, I can't stop looking at it... Now seriously... Meg - where did this picture come from??? What's the rest of the story???

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:52 PM

I know how he feels.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 01:58 PM

This is sad. The poor things has probably been overfed.

He's not fat, he's zaftig! ;)

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 02:11 PM


That poor thing is obscene!

I have never in my life seen an obese squirrel!

Wow... this is something I will never forget....

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 02:17 PM

skwerl: No, no...I couldn't eat another bite...no really...

skwerl girlfriend: But I made your favorite acorn pie....

skwerl: gosh, it looks so yummy...but I'm sooo fulll

skwerl girlfriend: *pouts*

skwerl: ok, ok...put whip cream on it...

come late fall our skwerls fatten themselves up kind a like this, and then when it's cold they will sit on our fence all huddled/puffed for warmth...this leetle fatty guy looks just like our skwerls before they go into hibernation...

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 02:30 PM

"Look - squirrels are supposed to hibernate; and before going into that deep sleep, we're supposed to eat, eat and eat to stock up on the extra pounds and...what?

I'm still giggling...

I take it this isn't one of those NYC skee-whirls mentioned in the chipmunk thread. I think someone's friend will freak out if she sees this one!

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 02:42 PM

I've seen a squirrel that is _nearly_ that fat on my college campus. It drapes itself over (straddles) a tree limb, hangs its little feet and "cusses" at passerbys. It's the Archie Bunker of squirrels.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 02:46 PM

Squirrels this fat are seen most often in the fall, squished in the street. Not as fast as they think they are. But the cars are! :-(

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 02:50 PM

Hm. I really wanna offer him a 'wafer-thin mint'...

But, Mr. Creosote aside, I must say: I love fat animals! Chubby furry bellies *rule* :-)

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 03:09 PM

Seriously - absent pointy ears and long tail, it looks very like a groundhog.

E. Collison
 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 03:12 PM

That picture reminds me of a prarie dog on my site..lol but of course it's not. Did you really eat hedghog?? I hope not. :) wow. I am cute overloaded! XD

His momma tells all the eligible girl squirrels "...he has a great personality, really."

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 03:26 PM

He must be on one of those new diet plans. LOL

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 03:49 PM

It's true...the camera really does add 10 lbs.!

LOL @ Mr. Creosote..."Get me a bucket!"

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 03:51 PM

Skwerlon Brando? Wait, no...Jabba the Skwerl?

Please tell me this photo is from the Fall, there's no reason for a skwerl to be this fat in July!
(I bet he's good eatin' for park dwellers...)

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 04:26 PM

Is that what that is, Tony James, a Rock Hyrax? I have read about them...don't think I have ever seen one!

This one is making me short of breath just looking at him!

But he deserves a kiss on the schmuzzle just the same!

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 04:43 PM

This guy needs to watch some of Squirlie Maclaine's exercise videos.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 04:45 PM

Alright everyone, lets not get all 'SKWERLY' over this... (bwhahhaahaha!)

Jan Spencer
 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 04:54 PM

Wow, I think this skwrl swallowed a hedgehog!

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 05:12 PM


What a porker.

A thinker
 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 05:13 PM

Lardass squirrel. I'm laughing and crying both.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 05:25 PM

Does anyone else see the Marlon Brando of the squirrel world? I can hear him making an offer I "can't refuse".

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 05:42 PM

This photo was taken last August in Pebble Beach, CA. This was at one of the stops along the 17-Mile Drive where the local wildlife tends to be fed a lot of snacks. It was a ground dweller amongst the rocks near the shore -- I assumed it was a squirrel of some sort.

Given the season, perhaps its extreme girth is also due to it getting ready for hibernation.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 05:56 PM

Whatever the season, he's still too damn cute. :) Definitely not a Florida squirrel, as they are all skinny down here. Up north in the Wisconsin/Illinois area, dang, they got big. But they had to in order to survive.

"What a shame. And such a pretty face..."

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 07:10 PM

He needs to talk to the chipmunk about wearing vertical stripes. They're very slimming.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 07:43 PM

Shouldn't this be a cute or sad thing? I was going to mention the P-word, too, but didn't want to wash my mouth with soap for the twelfth time today.

Seriously, this looks like something out of Rotten.com .

The Guy Over There
 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 08:17 PM

Don't worry; I'm sure he has a lovely personality.

 |  Jul 05, 2006 at 08:27 PM

It's a marmot with a squirrels head...or is a squirrel with a marmots body?
