Well something plants walnuts all over our garden and leaves them until seedlings come up....
This one does exactly what it says on the tin, folks. And yes, it is the best thing.
Food-caching is a system of hoarding common to a number of species in the animal kingdom, though squirrels are probably some of the better-known creatures to practice it – hence one of my favorite verbifications:
verb ( squirrels, squirreling , squirreled )
1 [ with obj. ] (squirrel something away) hide money or something of value in a safe place: the money was squirreled away in foreign bank accounts.
In nature, one of the consequences of food caching is seed dispersal. If a hidden nut or seed is forgotten about by the animal that stashed it, it has a chance to germinate and grow. For squirrels in captivity (especially ones that attempt to hide their food in the fur of other animals), I'd imagine the seed-dispersing benefits of caching are more or less lost – though the secondary effect of cuteness overload is clearly augmented considerably.
