The Squirrels Who Love To Get Stuck Into Coconuts

article-0-089B25FF000005DC-604_636x447

As a snack, coconuts were certainly head and shoulders above anything else on offer in the garden.So this pair of comical squirrels immersed themselves in their task, nibbling every last morsel from the shells, which had been hollowed out for them by householder Jane Roberts. They are regular visitors to Ms Roberts’ garden in Fareham, Hampshire and often used to steal the food put out for the birds, but now they are just nuts about coconuts.Jane, 46, puts out two nuts a week and she suspends them on pieces of string from the washing line.

She said: ‘I make a large hole in the coconut so that they can get into the flesh. ‘The first time I saw them feeding, I nearly died laughing,’ she said.’They looked just like a pair of spacemen.
