“April 1 Easter squirrel (3 photos) Taken on April 1, but not a April fool day joke. This squirrel really was stealing a plastic Easter egg someone had hidden in the bushes! Amos Bairoch: These were not staged pictures. This squirrel really pinched a plastic Easter egg near a building on the Georgetown University Campus. I hope it was not disappointed once it managed to open it! (But I still dont know why someone had hidden plastic eggs in those bushed one week ahead of Easter!).”
The Red Fox: Males are referred to as reynards, females as vixens, and young as kits, pups or cubs. A group of foxes is a "skulk", "troop" or "earth". Their main diet is insects, reptiles, berrys and nuts. They, like squirrels, are hoarders. They gather, eat just enough for the day, and then store the rest for snow days.
