Red Squirrel Craves Salt

Red Squirrel accidentally introduced to a salted roast peanut for the first time does something totally unexpected  - it begins to lick the peanut for several minutes - I run to get my camera and he continues savoring it I guess for the salty mineral content of the peanut shell and never opens or eats it. In fact, he carefully puts it away in a safe place for later use as a salt lick and eats some more bird seed. Of course, you should not feed squirrels salted peanuts - I'll eat the rest of the bag!
