Undeniable Fact: A Nutty Tail

Ever wonder why squirrels have those bushy tails? Oddly enough, those tails are specially designed to carry pollen to the oak tree. In early spring the squirrels, knowing that the coming acorn harvest depends on it, climb from oak tree to oak tree, carefully gathering and depositing pollen as they go. Squirrels who refuse to carry out this important ritual are often attacked and sometimes eaten by other squirrels.
