30,000 year old squirrels!

We must go to squirrel town!
Stanzie and I know where they live!
In these Oak Trees, with all the squirrel cubby holes and all the acorns.

I know you are up there! Come down here and say that to my face!!

Have you heard the latest squirrel news ?!?!

Russian Scientists found an ice age squirrel's treasure chamber, a burrow containing fruit and seeds that had been stuck in the Siberian permafrost for over 30,000 years.
From the fruit tissue, a team of scientists managed to resurrect an entire plant in a pioneering experiment that paves the way for the revival of other species.
Behold! The Silene stenophylla is the oldest plant to ever be regenerated and it is fertile, producing white flowers and seeds!

One scientist was quoted.."If we are lucky, we can find some frozen squirrel tissue" and "This path could lead us all the way to mammoth"

The thought of a giant mammoth dog eating squirrel is too much for me!!
I'm Scared! I saw Jurassic Park!

Oh Crap....



  1. Ha ha ha! I don't want to think about Prehistoric squirrels, either! That's just too creepy!


  2. Hehehe, we saw Jurassic Park too and loved it. Just think of a giant marrow bone, 6 ft long, to chew on! Mmmmmm. Have a great weekend. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  3. Good grief. I'll never get to sleep tonight.

  4. Ha ha, I was gonna say it sounds like Jurassic Park, but you said it first! Don't let Monsanto get a hold of them seeds!

  5. I keep picturing the little squirrel in the block of ice from Ice Age...

  6. Hah, a giant mammoth dog eating squirrel! Terrifying!

  14. Holy crap! I'd be scared too! We don't want any giant squirrels around here!
