Hungry squirrel climbs the coat of a three-year-old girl to feast on hazelnuts out of the palm of her hand.
The sweet moment was captured on video by mum Polina, 27, who told Newsflash that she and daughter Ulyana encountered the squirrel on a walk in the park near their home in Perm, Russia.
Nail artist Polina shared with Newsflash the incredible way she spent her time off work alongside her daughter.
She said: “The main character in the video is my daughter Ulyana. Ulyana fed hazelnuts to the squirrel.”
The bushy-tailed beast was so eager to get the hazelnuts off Ulyana’s hands that it wasted no time before jumping on her and climbing her coat.
The young girl tries to bend down and put the food down but the fast-moving squirrel snatched it up before she could blink.
Just to make sure, it holds Ulyana’s hand with both its front paws to make sure the treats stay within reach.
Polina said: “I noticed that the squirrel is not afraid of us and ran up and took the nuts directly from her hands.
“When my daughter did not have time to bend over and give the nuts, the squirrel climbed on her and took them.”
