Who's That Squirrel?

Recently eaten: cheeseburger, french fries, a few pints
Recent annoyance: car alarms

As I think about being the squirrel on this humid Friday morning, and trying to understand that we are all trying to get the proverbial nut, it occurs to me that I have never seen a baby squirrel. Not once in my 18 years of living in the burbs, or my next four years of living in the wilds of upstate New York have I ever seen what might be construed as a baby squirrel. I admit I have spotted juvenile squirrels, slightly ganglier and friskier versions of the adults. But what the heck does a baby squirrel look like? I turned to Google for an answer:

Knights of Columbus! That thing is hideous! I guess there is a reason baby squirrels are never seen in their natural habitat.
