I watched nervously as an enormous and terrifying beast scurried through the treetops toward me. That thing must be a thousand pounds, what is it!?!? Just then it popped out onto an old dead tree that was leaning over precariously. Oh, squirrel. Whew. He seemed very excited, like every squirrel the moment before jumping out of a tree onto some unsuspecting human. Then he made his move, sliding head first down that tree and stopping halfway to make sure I was watching, then all the way to the bottom!
