A SQUIRREL’S MEMORY

wallpapers-widescreen-animals-seeds-pictures-squirrel-getting-wallpaper

A squirrel scurried along in the park and then stopped.  It took observations before scurrying along some more.

What does a squirrel think when it stops to take observations?

Gosh those people are huge!  How big are the nuts they eat?

I once read that squirrels have bad memories, but a great sense of smell.   Squirrels forget where they buried their nuts.  When squirrels dig up nuts, the nuts were buried by another squirrel.  A squirrel’s keen sense of smell leads it to nuts buried by other squirrels.  They go around digging up each other’s nuts.

How do scientists know this?  How do they know that squirrels have bad memories and a keen sense of smell?  Did a squirrel confess?

“Hey Doc, I can’t remember shit, but boy can I smell it!”

Apparently new research shows that squirrels do not have bad memories, and can remember where they buried their nuts.  Who knows?  The next time I am talking to a squirrel, I will ask it before it buries me.
