Squirrels are my most familiar animal, as I've grown up around them my entire life. I've never lived anyplace where squirrels weren't abundant. They've always been great friends at the park but this video in particular is interesting because it is the first time a squirrel heard MY thoughts. I had just learned a new gesture from another squirrel.
I met the squirrel in the video at bit later and he was very happy that I learned the gesture. As I walked away, I thought 'man, I should've filmed that on my phone', to which the squirrel communicated to me 'I can do it!' And chased me to do this filming. When we got enough recorded, we bid each other adieu and parted ways.
Communication via: body posture and hand guestures.
