Squirrel Jump !!

Squirrel Jump !

As you watch -  Squirrels run, jump and disappear quickly – here is one jumping from a concrete sun shade  to a nearby tree ! – a couple of feet down and away as well.

Squirrel jump !!

வானம் கீழே வந்தால் என்ன அட பூமி மேலே போனால் என்ன

மாயம் எல்லாம் மாயம் இதில் மனிதன் நிலை என்ன

வாடா ராஜா வா வா இதில் முதலும் முடிவென்ன  !!

    Squirrels are renowned for their agility. They can jump in the blink of an eye to a tree top and from one branch to another – some are high jumps and some long !! The squirrels are sprightly and quickly defy the force of gravity that weighs them down. You often see that a squirrel does not need a running start to make such high jumps. They have strong hind legs, which are longer than their front ones. This gives them a powerful force to propel themselves forward.

They get  this force because their bodies are very light and small.  Larger squirrels will usually be able to cover greater distances than smaller ones due to sheer muscle power – although the animal’s shape is also important as a larger surface area generally means better grip on whatever they are jumping off from. Squirrels can easily  jump up to 4 feet vertically and 6 feet horizontally.  That’s the equivalent of 4-5 human strides!

Interesting !
