What Squirrels Do On Hot Days

Los Angeles County Arboretum:

 

We went to the arb on Tuesday....it was hot! We knew it was going to be hot, but it was HOT!

 

Not too many squirrels out and about but those who were, well let me just say, there was a lot of planking going on.

 

I researched and found out this is actually called "heat dumping". They find a cool place, spread-eagle, and release some of that excess body heat. Sometimes I wish I could do that......
