Woman Records A Baby Squirrel Making Adorable Sounds While It Eats

It seems as if the world has become obsessed with squirrel videos. It’s easy to see why because they are just so adorable. Most videos show the animals nibbling on some food or scurrying about on the forest floor.

This may lead some people to wonder, what does such an adorable animal sound like when they are eating? You don’t need to wonder any longer, thanks to Dani Connor Wild, a Twitter wildlife photographer. She shared a clip that gives you the up-close and personal sound of a red squirrel eating.

The clip has gone viral for all the right reasons. A microphone was put right next to the squirrel who is busy chewing away on something. It’s an adorable, squeaky sound that we all need during the quarantine.

She captioned the video, “I put my microphone in front of a 7-week-old baby red squirrel.”

More than 14 million people have viewed the clip since it was uploaded. People are absolutely in love with the sound they are hearing and are open about expressing their feelings.
