'Squirrel king' — squirrels with their tails tangled together in Christmas lights. In the wild, squirrels make their nests of dried leaves and branches. A strange natural mishap can occur when sap from pine branches that the nest is constructed of, can adhere to the squirrels’ tails and ultimately to each other’s tails. Squirrels normally have litters of 4 to 6 babies. As they are fed in the nest, they are quite “squirmy” and move around frequently. Once their tails become stuck together, movement is limited amongst them and they jump around trying to reposition themselves. In the process, they literally knot or braid themselves together. The squirrels pull in many directions, thereby worsening the situation. They can actually live quite a long time like this, as the mother continues to feed them.
