Squirrels Go Mad For Coconuts
A pair of squirrels have taken their love of coconuts to a different level - by getting stuck into their favourite snacks.

They love them so much that they dive right inside the shells to get the last tasty bit.
The squirrels are regular visitors to Jane Roberts' garden in Fareham, Hampshire.
They often used to steal the food put out for the birds but now they are just crazy about coconuts.
Jane, 46, puts out two nuts a week and suspends them on pieces of string from the washing line.
She said: "I make a large hole in the coconut so that they can get into the flesh. The first time I saw them feeding I nearly died laughing, they looked just like a pair of spacemen.
"Even now I can't stop chuckling every time I see them."
