Picture yourself at a dinner party outdoors in New England and stopping the conversation by saying “Hey everyone, look! It’s a squirrel!”.  Imagine how they would look at you.  That’s the same way people here look at you when you stop things to show them an iguana. Believe me, I know.

However, if you showed them a squirrel, they might be interested.  The only one I’ve seen here was at the zoo the other day.  He had his own big cage with a tree inside, kept separate from other animals. I wonder how all the squirrels running free at Franklin Park Zoo would feel about this?
