This video makes clear that our algorithms for locating nuts, as opposed to hiding them, is sorely in need of further development. As I type this, a team of squirrel programmers are busily working the problem, with a beta test scheduled for release some time late this year. =^.^=

I guess it`s time to explain how we squirrels do the whole nut thing.

Each nut cache is assigned a unique Cache ID based on date, GPS coordinates, Nut Code, expiration date, and Squirrel User ID. Thus, the Cache ID for a stash of acorns I buried in my backyard yesterday is: 20130325-43.29468N/ 71.4681W-Ac1-20140625-Squrlz4Sale.

This Cache ID is then uploaded to our mainframe, Deep Squirrel, which stores the information in a massive Oracle database available to the international squirrel community. To retrieve a cache, the information is downloaded and displayed on an internal HUD etched within each squirrel`s corneas, overlaying the data upon the squirrel`s view of the surroundings--think of it as Google Glasses for squirrels, only we squirrels have been doing it for decades.

This was somewhat fascinating, but I admit I felt a little bad for the squirrel when he couldn`t find the nuts anymore xD

That was a VERY well done experiment! Bravo for "home science"!
