Sure, squirrels can be cute sometimes. Most of the time, however, they’re just annoying rodents that make a mess in the backyard. Since it seems all but impossible to keep them away forever, might as well have a laugh at their expense every time they come foraging for food with this Horse Head Squirrel Feeder.
Yes, it’s just like the Horse Head Mask that can turn humans into creepy upright stallions and cute dogs into even cuter little ponies. Except scaled down (6.5 x 10 inches) to fit smaller squirrel-sized bodies, so the rodents in the backyard can look like they’re standing around with a horse head on.
The Horse Head Squirrel Feeder comes with a pre-drilled hole on top where you can thread a piece of string for hanging. Simply place it in an area of the backyard that squirrels tend to frequent when scoping out food, fill the snout with feed, and wait for the little critters to stick their head in to grab a bite. They recommend hanging the feeder 8 to 10 inches above a solid surface (like branches or railings) that the squirrel can stand on, so they’ll need to get up on their hind legs to get access to the food inside. While the usual nuts, seeds, and corn will make for the best lure, they also recommend mixing in a little peanut butter to keep the feed from falling out. Incidentally, the peanut butter should also make it harder for the squirrels to pick out the feed, forcing them to spend more time with their heads buried in the mask and extending the comedy show just a little bit longer.
Available now, the Horse Head Squirrel Feeder retails for $14.99.
