The Swedes must be great animal- and nature-lovers so that all the creatures of nature trust them so much. Maybe even spiders won’t bite them. smile


I don’t think the animals in Sweden in general are like that - they also have wolves, for example, and they are considered quite dangerous. That’s why I wonder how those in the park had become so tame.


I did a search to see if I could find anything about the Swedish park, but didn’t find anything. It seems though that tame squirrels are quite common. Here’s some videos from London and Croatia:

Would have loved to feed a squirrel by hand. Certainly they’re much less creepy than spiders! Pity that here in Singapore you can never get near them. One wonders why there’s such a great difference in their behavior from one place to another.


(And I wonder if squirrels eat spiders?...)

When we see people being shot, roasted, crushed, beheaded etc on the big screen, we consider it standard entertainment fare. But when we see child porn on the big screen, we immediately call the authorities.

I wouldn’t be surprised, they eat everything else!  They’ve gnawed at one of my outdoor heavy duty extension cables.  Fortunately it didn’t go all the way through to the wires, just the inside insulations were exposed.  I had to wrap it with electrical tape.  So they obviously think electrical wire is food.  (There is a species of cockroach that lives on insulation…they live their entire lives inside older TVs just munching away, until suddenly the set doesn’t work!)

Some humans also also eat some rather strange things:


“Michel Lotito (June 15, 1950 - June 25, 2007[citation needed]) was a French entertainer, born in Grenoble, famous for deliberately consuming indigestible objects. He came to be known as Monsieur Mangetout (“Mister Eat All The Things”).[1]


His performances involved the consumption of metal, glass, rubber and other materials. He disassembled, cut-up, and consumed bicycles, shopping carts, televisions, a Cessna 150,[2] and other items. The Cessna 150 took roughly two years to be “eaten,” from 1978 to 1980. He began eating unusual material as a teenager around 16 years of age and performed publicly from 1966.”
