Picnic in the park this afternoon. I may have dropped some peanuts. This guy got pretty close as a result. He may actually have eaten his entire bodyweight in peanuts, and was struggling to run away when a small child came running after him to ‘play’.
It might not have been the first time that’s happened either. He’s missing most of his tail, and part of his ear. Evolutionary survival instincts of opportunistic eating and being able to run away at odds here.
