Squirrel makes the most of rare & healthy snack
Filmed in Kruger National Park, South Africa. The video shows a little squirrel trying to make the most of this healthy and rare snack. This made for some comical viewing as the little one was running around like crazy, trying to get as many as quickly as possible. Most people will know squirrels to be herbivores. Generally they will feed on most plant foods around such as fruits and flowers, seeds, nuts, roots and bulbs. On rare occasions, after the first rains in this very dry African Wilderness area, these flying ants and termites emerge from their nests in their millions. Highly rich in protein, these insects are enough to turn any herbivore into a carnivore for a little while.
