Happy Easter! Here's today's trickster of nature fact of the day. Squirrels will watch each other burying nuts for the winter and sometimes dig up their rival's food and steal it. It has been observed that some squirrels will PRETEND to bury a nut when they know they're being watched and then go somewhere ELSE to actually hide it. The would be thief wastes his time trying to find a nut that isn't there! #aprilfools #natureclub #squirrels
