Funny Squirrel Videos and Pictures

Squirrels annoy some people, but I think most everyone can agree that squirrels can be hilarious.

So, I'm sharing funny squirrel videos and images for your viewing pleasure.


Sometimes squirrels are funny because of the way they interact with other animals, such as birds and cats.

And other times it's the way they interact with their environment.

A Little About Squirrels

Squirrels belong to a large family of small or medium-sized rodents called the Sciuridae, which include tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including woodchucks), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs.

They are now on almost every continent, and now even Australia has the pleasure of squirrels.  The name comes from the old French word escurel. 

As you may guess by their large, bulging eyes, squirrels usually have excellent vision, which is especially important for tree-dwelling species.  A squirrel with bad vision probably doesn't last long jumping between trees.  They also have very versatile and sturdy claws for grasping and climbing.  Their feet are like having four hands.

If you're fortunate, you'll see flying squirrels, which tend to be most active at dusk.  They are amazing to watch and can be pretty entertaining.

Now, go take some pictures of squirrels and share them with the rest of us!

Tritrain, I like this, very entertaining, videos and all. Okay now, all of the other relatives of the squirrel I could have guessed, but prairie dogs, no. Very interesting research. Voted up/awesome/useful.

Aah, that poor drunken squirrel in your second video. You have to feel sorry for him. He seems so bewildered by his plight. I can just hear his mate scolding when he returns home.

"Out drinking with the boys again. Get outta here." Thanks for this insightful hub and fascinating videos, tritrain.

Perhaps a "new meaning" to say, they were kinda "squirrelly..."
