Mother Nature Weed Wacker

Last week we noticed a bunch of Spade plant leaves on the patio around one of our mini ponds. The leaves didn't fall off because of the fall season, they looked like they were chopped off. I set up the camera to find out who the weed wacker was and surprise: it was a squirrel. It didn't look like he was actually eating them, just chewing them off at the stem. Maybe there was some small juicy meat at the joint but that is really hard to see. In these pictures, the squirrel is really hard at work chomping on the Spade plant.
