Squirrel turned Snake April 18, 2013

Recently I have seen squirrels roll over a wet dirty surface like a snake. They rub their body against the dirt and then clean off the dirt. I am guessing this to be a method to get rid of ticks and other parasites. May be a “cleaning” technique

A video of the action : snakey squirrel
