    I am disturbed. Here is maybe the most beautiful and big squirrel I have ever seen.... along with a massive fucking rat. :tired: This is right next to my apartment building, below my balcony. Noooo!

    Odd that they are cousins.  Squirrels are cute and mostly harmless but I have an absolute hatred of wild rats (partly due to several hundred dollars of auto damage a few years ago from rats).  I saw a small dog on campus early one morning at one of the colleges I worked at in the early 80's.  When I got closer I realized it was a huge rat.  Head and body were easily 30 cm long.   Freaked me right out!

    But that said, at one time in my life, the only pets I was able to keep were small animals.  I had pet rats a few times and a mouse once (they only live a couple of years) and they can be surprisingly fun and easy to keep.  Mine used to ride on my shoulder or sleep in my lap like a cat when I watched TV.  But I must say, I'm far happier now having a cat!

    Wow!  That rat is a good size.  Reminds me of the one max killed in our backyard about a month ago.

    There are at least 4 pups (the one above is the biggest) ... they were just exploring for one of the first times in their lives that day after a long break of unseasonably cold weather.  That one is the scout.  There is a little runt who could star in a Disney film.

    I hadn't seen them for over a week but today I spotted the mother out hunting and I think she moved the den to a more secluded area on a hillside a few hundred yards away.  If the weather is nice I might grab my binoculars and set up a blind.  I have a Nikon that has an insane 200x optical zoom.

    I see grey foxes around our neighborhood, and rarely a red fox when I am out at the ranch!  Neat animals.

    Found this little fella on my kitchen counter.  He was exhausted, so I picked him up and put him on the deck table along with some water.  He ended up staying the night resting up and was gone by mid-morning.

    Saw this cute family about a mile down the road from our place:

    Perhaps she did survive Rob.  It took our little guy quite a while to recoup.

    awww, what a cute family Brian.  Nice to see that they didn’t take the whole lane.

    No sure about that, never been to Erie. I'm in the suburbs of philly. My screen name is from a magazine my friends and I worked on a long time ago called EeriePA :smile:
