Okay, I know this little sucker needs to put on weight before hibernation, but... christmas cookies... I hope that's one big tunnel entrance! They could wash the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel if they soap him/her up and shove him/her through!

Wha? How the hell am I gonna stuff him in my mouth? And the tail! My gaia, the tail!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 08:35 AM

What exactly is this furrilicious little rodent? A ground squirrel? Gopher? Prairie dog? Groundhog?? Whatever he is, he's a sweet little ball of rodent blubber and fur. Hope he has a nice cosy winter, dreaming of tasty vegetable matter.

Pudge pudge!! I must snuggle the puuudge! What a perfectly snorgtastic little ball of fluff. Once she passes out for hibernation, it'll be 24-hour-a-day snugfesting.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 08:51 AM

That's a squirrle?!?! That actually makes me really sad. The poor little lardo probably can't climb a tree to save his life. I think that level of obesity is animal abuse. He clearly didn't get that way w/o the help of people.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 08:54 AM

Yeah I can almost imagine the poor critter's clogged arteries

CB -- chill. That isn't a tree climbing squirrel. Check out the tail! That's a ground-squirrel of some sort or description. A completely round, ready to hibernate the winter away, ground-variety squirrely-rodenty-something. A really cute one. A really round one. If an animal is programmed to hibernate, non-obesity would be the cruel thing. Have you ever seen bears preparing for winter?

I'm actually 90% positive that the chubby lil' ball of fluff in the photo is a groundhog. Still in the squirrel family, but not quite a squirrel. ^^;

that's a mos' precious squirrel/ground squirrel/gorundhog/whatevs. and definitely prepping for Winter.
I'm curious about the environment, though, was this pic taken in the wild, in a habitat? the ground cover looks like wood shavings.

mariser -- definitely looks more like the pic was taken in the Tame, rather than in the Wild, but who knows? Wherever he/she hibernates, he/she is one cute critter.

The trouble with typing with one hand while eating a bagel with the other (getting ready for hibernation, myself, cuz it sounds so good), is sometimes yer comment gets screwed up. That was supposed to say "In Jerry Lee Lewis voice -- Goodness, Gracious, Great Balls of Fur!" Don't know where Jerry Lee disappeared to the first time!

That rodent is in perfect shape.

What?! Round IS a shape! :P

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 09:36 AM

"A completely round, ready to hibernate the winter away, ground-variety squirrely-rodenty-something."

And if turns out that he's fat even for a ground dweller at least he's the perfect shape for rolling from A to B.

There's always a silver lining!

It's either a squirrel-shaped softball, or a squirrel that ATE a softball...

Woah!! Its so fat you can hardly see its tail, and squirrels are FAMOUS for their bushy tails!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 09:39 AM

mmmm... hibernation... mmmm.... bagels.... maybe that's why I am so sleepy this morning. It's time to get fat and hibernate!!

"Round IS a shape!" lol

I'm thinking this squirrely-rodenty-something is a groundhog, and he's puttin' the word hog in groundhog fer shure.

He reminds me of William Howard Taft, actually.

I can imagine him saying, "I'm not fat, I'm portly," except I really wonder whether he can port himself anywhere any way but by rolling.

Awww it's a cute little squish!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 09:56 AM

He's just big-boned.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 10:03 AM

Squirrels pull up to the McDees drive through:

Sqirrel: I'll have a #2, a #5, two #1 and a supersized #6, with a diet soda.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 10:14 AM

I think photographing him from above has made him look fatter than he is... sort of telescoped him up.

He was probably *mortified*... "That's not my good side! Look at my ass! My ass is NOT that big. I'm so depressed now. Give me doughnuts."

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 10:18 AM

Good Lard, now *that's* what I call a furball!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 10:21 AM

Loris - I LOL'ed at "he's just big boned". Having been overweight most of my life (not now..size 8 now) I can totally relate to that statement. Priceless! :-)

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 10:22 AM

"He reminds me of William Howard Taft, actually."

Snort! Guffaw! Warrior Rabbit, that's so good! Wonder if this skwerly thing had to have a special bathtub made for him, too??
(and to geekette.co.uk, ground squirrels don't have the same bushy tail as Chatterer the Red Squirrel up in the tree. They either have little flicker tails about two to three inches long, and thin, or a little skwiff of a tail like this er, "round" specimen. I'm sure he's not covering up a whole bushy tail under there. Although who knows what might be under there? The entire city of New York perhaps (I can see the headline now, "Squirrel, Readying Self for Hibernation, Eats Central Park")

Monica: Remember the camera adds ten pounds--

Chandler: How many cameras did you have pointed at you?

(I think he's a perfect pooshula just the way he is.)

It's a gerbil! Check out the tail.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 10:43 AM

Look out, Pilsbury Doughboy, you have competition! Do you think Mr. McPortlygroundsquirrelersons will object if I reach out and tickle his warm, furry, pudgy tummy?

Speaking of Chatterer, big Mother West Wind props to useta hada kitteh!!!! We dearly loved those books in my house :) And I love "Great Balls of Fur," too. It's so very Paws Up (TM)!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 11:16 AM

He really looks more like a prarie dog to me, of course I could be wrong. Whatever it is, I'd like to pick it up and snorgle it, even risking those nasty claws on my face. Sometimes animals just end up pudgy, my friend's sister has a cat that eats nothing but diet cat food, and weighs like 20 pounds. *Shrug*

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 11:35 AM

omg thats like CUTE do you ever see overfeeding animals as animal crueltly?

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 11:45 AM

Whenever I call my cat Mitzi fat, my grandma says "Now don't call her that, she's not fat, it's just her SHAPE."

Yeah. I wish I could use that excuse!!!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 12:08 PM

Claire, "nothing but diet cat food" can still be expected to make a cat fat if it eats a *lot* of diet cat food. Just like humans get get plump on obnoxious amounts of Snackwell cookies. Like the ones in my cupboard right now, that I'm rationing.

It's his defense mechanism. Like a puffer fish. He's a puffer-squirrel.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 01:32 PM

Omigosh! Soooooooo cute!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 01:47 PM

Definitely doesn't look like a groundhog or a prairie dog to me. Check 'em out on Wikipedia -- even with the hilariously squooshy body making it difficult to compare, the face and the tail are totally squirrely.

Now I wonder if ground squirrels really hibernate, or if they just roll to the bottom of the their burrow and can't make it back uphill until they burn off the pounds. We need a team of Cuteologists to spend some time listening at the entrances this winter, reporting back whether they hear teeny squirrel snores or the faint sounds of jazzercise.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 02:06 PM

They do say the camera adds 10 lbs.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 02:23 PM

"They do say the camera adds 10 lbs."

So this ground squirrel weighs eleven pounds instead of one pound.

William Howard Taft-- I love it.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 02:38 PM


I wish to hug it. It looks eminently squeezable.

A thinker
 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 03:09 PM

LOL! This should be in the CUTE OR SAD category. I suspect we will see this pleasantly plump little guy on NBC's "The Biggest Loser" some day.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 03:10 PM

fate: Ummmmm...lemee see if I get this right...a ground squirrel; a species KNOWN for its pre-hibernation habit of gorging itself on every edible thing it can get its paws on so it's nice and fat for the winter, is...somehow...become CRUEL?!

My irony-meter just hit low-earth orbit...

Sqwerl is in shape.

Round is a shape!

A spherical sqwerl. The mind boggles.

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 03:13 PM

Okie off to weightwatchers with you ;)!

 |  Sep 24, 2006 at 03:23 PM

Aiyee! I want to eat him! But not really 'cause that would be mean. Smooshy fat squirrely pie!
