As the hot weather persists in the Bay Area, animals are starting to behave strangely. Take the above squirrel for example. I caught the little critter lounging on the cool cement floor in the back yard, spreading himself to dissipate heat more effectively. I half expected to see a police squirrel to show up and frisk him. He has been in the same Position for at least 15 minutes and counting. I wonder if I will encounter more strange animal behaviors as the sweltering heat continues.
