Super Squirrel (video)

You’ve seen the video of the squirrel who could perform miraculous feats to the music of Mission Impossible. All to get a little food. I donít think any of us would even begin to make such efforts for our next meal.

Well, it turns out that squirrel wasnít unique. The little guy in this BBC video set to dramatic music does a lot of the same aerial feats as he leaps through a complex course, and he water skis too. Who would have thought that the tiny animals that jump around in trees have such skill and such determination? How much of this have we never discovered in many other species?
