Everyone knows that squirrels, at least North American squirrels, are very greedy.  They scarf up all the food that kind-hearted people put out for the birds and will do almost anything if the reward involves something yummy.  But is it possible that a squirrel can be too ambitious when it comes to feeding its face?  The answer, dear reader, is yes, emphatically yes.

Stay still you stupid coconut!

All the other squirrels will be so jealous...

I don’t know how long that the coconut had been sitting out but, as you can see in the last picture, it didn’t seem to taste too good.  Immediately after that shot the squirrel scampered off, hopefully in search of an acorn!
