Not only pets but also wild animals, living next to people, begin to enrich themselves intellectually. In particular, they gain experience about where the food and water come from.
In the wild, there is nothing like a plastic bottle, but when the dehydrated squirrel saw it in the hands of people, she immediately began to beg to share it with her!
It is not known where this video was filmed, most likely, in an American city park. There is generally a lot of squirrels, begging for food, but water is a rare thing.
Apparently, the unfortunate animal was really exhausted from thirst, because it was very persistent in asking for water. And when people figured out how to help him drink water, the squirrel drank at least a glass of water in one swoop!
He didn’t need anyone’s need. Probably, the squirrel had seen the process of drinking water many times.
Alas, the squirrel was not too grateful and ran away. According to specialists, urban squirrels are very smart – it is enough for them to see once that water is poured from a bottle, and they will immediately establish a causal relationship.
The footage is an example of that the squirrel was clearly behaving purposefully.
