In Bergen, Norway, a crowd attending a bike race found a squirrel's acrobatics almost as entertaining as the main event.

I've seen them jump many times as far.  while hunting along a river where i used to live they would climb to the top of a tree on one side of the river and run out and leap to lower branches on trees on the other side.  I'd guess at least a 25 foot horizontal distance leap.  they'd start at 60-70 feet up in the air and land on lower branches 10-15 feet max off the ground.  first time i saw it i was dumbstruck but saw it many times afterward.  the branches they landed on would dip 5 feet or more and act like a spring to absorb the energy. 

and yes i did see them miss on the landing on occasion and they were just stunned for a minute but otherwise appeared unharmed.

squrlz4ever Now look. You're my bud but I love the fresh taste of squrlzs meat on my barby or even better in my stew pot. It's nothing personal but I live in the Blue Ridge mountains and we like meat on the menu. About the only critter I won't eat is opossum. But  rabbit, squirlz, racoon, fox, cat, dog etc are fair game. I've told you as long as you give me a heads up when you're in the neighborhood and you wear an orange squrlz vest, you're safe with me. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do to eat.

scheckydamon Well, I was skeptical, but the local Dick's Sporting Goods does carry hunter vests in squirrel sizes, and I look fabulous in mine. So it's a deal.

scheckydamon Au contraire, once the lady squirrels see me in this vest, I'll have to beat them off with a stick. It's very slimming and orange is definitely my color.

squrlz4ever Sorry but it's not that dapper. I hate to say it but the only beating off going on will be paw to gland combat.

squrlz4ever I thought you would have gotten a squirrel rifle while you were there (to fend off hunters)

thezigrat There are only two things from the water I'm not fond of. Brook trout and Amberjack. I LOVE Octopus and some of the best Calamari  I ever had was at Fisherman Wharf in Sham Fransisco. I'd check with Dick's to see if they have your species in Orange.
