We have a recent sighting of Henry the tailless squirrel. And, based on evidence available to us, Henry is able to successfully forage for sustenance in spite of his (her?) lack of a tail.
Note in the photo above that a nearby squirrel with an intact tail seems to be jealously eyeing our hero Henry’s prize walnut. However, no taunting or aggression toward Henry was reported.
Which leads us to wonder if there is a rule of the Suburban Jungle: Let the tailless squirrel have its nut.
