Don’t Let The Fluffy Tail Fool You: This Vampire Squirrel Is A Killer
Vampire squirrels, people. VAMPIRE SQUIRRELS. (!!!)
The tufted ground squirrel, also known by its Latin name, Rheithrosciurus macrotis, enjoys springing through trees, eating giant acorns and communing with other squirrels. According to Bornean hunters, however, the tufted ground squirrel sometimes strays away from its usual fare in favor of a carnivorous approach.Hunters say the squirrels wait in low branches and drop onto the backs of passing muntjac. A small species of deer, the muntjac is ill matched against its surprise adversary. The squirrels skitter to the necks of the deer and quickly sever the muntjacs’ jugular veins. After that, the squirrels wait for the deer to die and then feast upon the unfortunate muntjacs’ internal organs.
Just think: you could be that muntjac.
Here’s a picture. Note the Satanic horns and the evil witch hands.
And exactly how “unusual” is this squirrel behavior, really? I mean the pouncing on the back, severing the jugular, waiting for the bleed out and devouring the internal organs.
Who even knows what these ungodly menaces are doing RIGHT NOW where there are no cameras and no one’s watching?
