Woman Catches Squirrel Racing Across Parking Lot, Then Realizes He Has Babies In His Mouth

When it comes to babies, we’ve often heard stories about moms saving their little ones from just about any circumstance imaginable.

Apparently, moms can lift a car if their baby is underneath it. While I need to see this to believe it, there is no questioning the fact that everyone knows to fear a mama bear.

But dads look out for their young, too! Just watch this video of a daddy squirrel doing his best to make sure his little ones stay safe.

One woman and her boyfriend were in a parking lot in Montana when they spotted a little squirrel running by their car. Not that uncommon — I’m sure most of us see squirrels every day.

But they quickly realized this squirrel was on a mission. He kept running between two trees, stopping part of the way through to take a quick break and keep an eye out. Once he’d made sure the area was clear of danger, he carried on.

After watching him for a bit, they realized he was moving his babies! Clearly, he felt the other tree was a safer spot for his young, whatever the circumstance might be.

That is one good dad taking care of his babies! Have you ever seen a squirrel acting like this before?

If you loved watching this squirrel look out for his family, you’ll also enjoy this elephant mama protecting her baby girl from the humans standing close to their herd.
