We were greeted at our campsite in the afternoon by this very friendly squirrel. He was not shy at all. I gave him some grapes which he devoured. I offered him a strawberry and he turned his nose up and just sat looking at me. I offered him a grape tomato and still nothing. I found he had a taste for Asiago flatbread chips! These he loved. I watched as he turned the chip around munching on the edge. He seemed to be smiling with delight. He’s by far the fattest and most friendly we have. Heather said he reminded her of the smiling Buddha so that’s his name. He’s come to visit every afternoon usually around three. He’s never come in the morning. I don’t know if he’s sleeping late or just making his rounds.
Oh I forgot to mention that he’s very neat! After each grape or chip he cleaned his mouth. Maybe he was just cleansing his pallet between flavors!
