Welcome back to another episode of SVR Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. This week, join us as Jim pushes deep into the treacherous suburban jungle in search of the elusive Scuridae carolinensis – the common yard squirrel.
This specimen demonstrates the ingenuity and tenacity with which the fearsome pine gopher pursues his prey.
In the eternal struggle between man and beast, score one for man.
This squirrel is smarter than a good 40% of the kids I went to high school with.
Finally, scientists know that all kinds of animals engage in play and games of various sorts. Squirrels, however, are among the animal kingdom’s best athletes.
You know, this last clip reminds us that life can kick our nuts across the yard without warning. When that happens, isn’t it comforting to know that you have a friend you can count on at Mutual of Omaha?
That’s it for this week, folks. Join us next time as Jim attempts to charm a King Cobra using only his willie. Until then, I’m Marlin Perkins.
