Your morning adorable: Enterprising squirrel tries to eat a coconut

June 19, 2009 | 11:35 am


This Fort Lauderdale, Fla., squirrel wasn't having any luck finding acorns in a city park (acorns are scarce this time of year).  So the enterprising little fellow decided to try his luck with a coconut instead! 

Since his choice of snack was larger than he was, the squirrel wasn't able to move it far -- but he did manage to gnaw a hole in its husk to get to its more delicious insides.  No word on if he put a lime in the coconut and drank them both up.
