Meet the weight-lifting squirrel that never was

London, March 26: In an amazing, but sneaky trick, a photographer has managed to get a squirrel pose with dumbbells in a photo shot that makes it look like the critter is flexing his muscles during an intense workout.

Max Ellis said that he had a few weights lying around so thought it’d be fun to see whether the squirrels which regularly come into his garden in London, would check it out, the Daily Star reported.

Ellis explained that he used some see-through wire so it looked extra natural and then it was just a matter of time waiting for one to get into the perfect position.

Ellis continued saying that one of the squirrels, who he has dubbed ‘Arnold Squirrelnegger’, sat at the exact spot he was hoping for and he got the perfect shots. (ANI)
