Did you know Teddy Roosevelt had a pet squirrel? Or that squirrels have perfectly focused vision, even in their peripheries? Or that their teeth grow 15 centimeters in a year? These are just a few of the facts that distinguish this humble rodent. Go for a hike and admire your bushy-tailed watchers from a respectful distance.
1… 2… 3… 4… trips to gnawing down a nearby branch, then dragging the branch into its house in Yellowstone National Park.
#TripTip: There are many rivers and streams in Yellowstone where beavers have built homes. Get out and take a hike near a stream and you may run across a beaver fixing his house or getting branches to eat or store food in its house.
Did you know… Red hair gene is recessive and requires two copies for it to present itself. Even then there is no guarantee it will. If both parents have the gene, there is a 1 in 4 chance they will have a redheaded child. Most natural born redheads have brown eyes, followed by green or hazel. Coming in at 1% of the world’s population, the blue eyed ginger is the rarest kind. So if you give one of these ginger’s a kiss, consider yourself lucky.
Find your favorite redhead and give them a peck on Kiss a Ginger Day.
Since I’m from a family of red-heads (having it myself), here’s a photo of my favorite animal red head!
