The Other Boleyn Squirrel

You know how Anne Boleyn was supposed to have had a little teeny sixth finger on her hand? I'm sure this is just urban myth, but I clearly remember learning about it in fifth grade social studies class. It wasn't a real finger, just a little nubbin off her pinky, and she apparently designed her gloves to have a little veil of fabric off the side of her hand to disguise it.

Well, this morning I went on a walk and saw a squirrel with an extra tail. Not a full-on second tail, just a good sized nubbin sticking off the bottom side of its real tail.

Crazy, Mother Nature. Very very crazy.

I think we could all use a little extra tail, don't you?

Man, that squirrel's kinda lucky huh, he's already got reasonably sized appendages and then he gets "a little extra tail" (to second carymc).
