A parched squirrel polished off a bottle of water in one long gulp. In astonishing footage, the squirrel runs after a child and stands on its hind legs, stretching out its front paws to beg for the bottle. It is not clear where the video was captured but the people in it sound American. One viewer on social media said of urban squirrels: ‘It only takes one person to offer them water from a bottle for them to know what a water bottle is.’

I know that they are just “rats”, but the intelligent adaption is fascinating.
