"Westley, What About the R.O.U.S.es?"

"Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist."


Westley would be wrong. This guy comes out from the hedge next door every evening at dusk.

Update: He was out again this morning. Here's a better shot.

Interesting sighting... but it could be a hamster in a gopher suit.

I'm lost on what movie you are talking about, but I do get flashbacks of Caddyshack.

CLASSIC movie.

Bear Me Out said...

A favorite movie of mine, as well. And you should see my local ground hog family. Unusual, indeed.

I love that movie, too. But right now I'm too distracted to think about it...

WHAT IS THAT THING??

Do they grow them that big in the Midwest? Should I stay home??

And seriously, how big is it?

Oh, that IS a wonderful movie...but I'll have to look at this critter's pic on another computer...I can't quite make out what it is...looks big, though.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Those critters have the old man in fits every year out in his garden. I think it's good for him. At 86 the occasional rant probably helps keep the blood circulating.

Sorry, Gay, this one's not a beaver. Beavers are around the area and they do look a lot like this, but this guy is a groundhog or a woodchuck.
