Da Claw!

Have you ever wondered how squirrels can run straight down tree trunks as well as run straight up them. First off it has to to with the fact that tree squirrels have sharp claws that are perfect for digging into bark to climb. Second of all and probably the coolest thing is that its ankle joints that are adapted to be super flexible. They can rotate 180 degrees. Try that with your ankle! When a squirrel wants to climb down it rotates its ankle and feet, digs its claws into the trunk and hang from its back legs as it is coming down.I hope that you are having a great week. God bless, chris #TeamCanon, #withmytamron
