A baby squirrel named Rob has proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that he can sleep anywhere, from the inside of a coffee mug to his rescuer’s palm or shirt pocket.
Rob was adopted by wildlife film maker Paul Williams, after he was abandoned by his mother. Paul then spent a month nursing the tiny rodent back to full health.
The puny palm squirrel spends most of the day sleeping in his owner’s shirt pocket and when he crawls out, Rob has been seen napping in a coffee mug, outside a temple and on the side of a tree.
