Imponderables

After a run in the woods, a modern gentleman sat on a stump to catch his breath. Nearby, a squirrel crouched curiously beneath a tree. A modern gentleman would have thought little of it except the squirrel acted so agitated when it saw him, as though it had been caught doing something shameful.

This begged the question: Do squirrels poop?

Squirrels eat, so where do the indigestible bits of all those nuts end up?

If the answer is yes, I have follow-up questions:

  • Has anyone else seen them do so?
  • Was the squirrel on the ground or did it evacuate before take-off, like a bird?
  • I imagine squirrel dung looks much like a rabbit’s. Is this the case?
