Few Animals that Can Actually Climb Trees

Written by

A whole range of birds, squirrels, here and there a cat - a likely list of the animals to be seen in trees. But nothing could be further from the truth. In today´s photogallery there are some pretty unexpected tree climbers from the animal world that you may come across. Some of them are especially cute while hanging in a tree, but there is a point to it, too – hurrying up a tree while in danger isn´t always that effective.
