Squirrel holds out paw to operate sensor water tap in China

A smart squirrel sussed out how to work a sensor faucet in southwestern China. The video, filmed in the city of Kunming in Yunnan Province on June 5, shows a squirrel holding its paw in front of the sensor on a tap to release the water which it drinks. A woman was heard saying: "Wow, it is so smart!" The filmer Ms Sun said she spotted the squirrel when she was about to wash her hands. The squirrel was not afraid of people, it did not leave until it finished drinking. The video was provided by local media with permission.
