  1. #1 Naked Squirrel Captured. Pic Goodness. 
    Pictured: Smoothie the bald squirrel that has vets scratching their heads

    The appearance of a completely bald squirrel has got staff at a wildlife centre scratching their heads in confusion.

    Vets at St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Aylesbury are trying to establish how and why the critter, who was found in Amersham, lost all his fur.

    Bald squirrels are not that uncommon but the hair loss is usually because the animal is suffering from mange, an illness caused by mites.



    Naked: Smoothie the squirrel has baffled vets

    Staff at St Tiggywinkles wildlife hospital are treating Smoothie to his favourite snack of pecan nuts while they wait for his test results

    But vets at St Tiggywinkles, who have nicknamed their new patient Smoothie, have no idea why he is bald, apart from a few tufts of fur on his tail.
    Probably this is some sort sign of the approaching Apocalypse.

    Rats!

    Hey - get out the skillet and fry that thing up!
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    It's named after a character in Beatrix Potter, Mrs. Tiggywinkle. I think she was a hedgehog.
