Deep in East Texas there is a squirrel who could show Tom Cruise a thing or two about running the gauntlet. The owner of the yard added a piece of the obstacle course slowly, over the duration of two weeks, so that the squirrel learned how to navigate and over come the obstacle one section at a time. When the squirrel learned a section a new one was added.
Obviously, this particular squirrel really loves nuts and nothing would stand in their way, even if that way is made more difficult than just simply climbing up a pole. On the other hand, the world would be a much better place if there were more squirrel obstacle courses for our amusement. Amirite? [Thanks Zack!]
