Curious Squirrel Warily Checks Out the Water Balloon That’s Deliberately Been Put in Her Path

A very curious squirrel named Olivia checks out an orange water balloon that’s been deliberately put in her path. At first, Olivia is very wary of the orange mass, but slowly gives in to temptation and begins chewing on the balloon to make it pop and then running away at the result. According to her human David Gagas, Olivia loves to chew on balloons, as evidenced by her previous encounters with various other colorful bladders.

I wondered what my squirrels would do with a balloon. Olivia grabbed one immediately and began chewing on the end and it deflated slowly. After that, they were fair game. She just chews them,not eat.
