Santa Monica Squirrel

On my way into work this morning, I was walking along 4th toward Pico and spotted a squirrel sitting next to the base of a palm tree, eating. I slowed my pace so as not to scare the thing away, however, as I passed him, he didn’t budge. He just kept on with his breakfast as though he had not a care in the world.

This is very different behavior from Riverdale squirrels, which make a mad dash up a tree everytime someone sneezes.
