Japanese Squirrel

Japanese Squirrel in the heatwave

We went to the Inokashira park at the weekend. Most of the park is given over to a small zoo. There is a squirrel enclosure where hundreds of these cute little creatures are free to run around. There were record high temperatures and it was just too hot for this one!

Hi Chris.
Yes, it was a really hot day, the poor thing was a bit tiried.

It was amusing because most of the squirrels were not affected and were bouncing around the enclosure, there were just a few that were feeling the heat like this one.

Talking of the heat, where the heck did summer go around here?

It's been pouring with rain for the last three days solid! Anyone would think we were back in England!
