Japanese Twitter Goes Crazy Over ‘Sexy’ Squirrel at Tokyo Zoo
Squirrels aren’t supposed to be sexy, but this one in particular in Japan has definitely made everyone confused with a “sexually provocative pose.”
The picture of the squirrel, which is a resident of the Squirrel Trail section at the Tokyo’s Inokashira Park Zoo, was shared online by Japanese Twitter user @boblim1204, according to SoraNews24. It managed to receive more than 138,000 likes and over 45,000 shares as of the time of writing.
However, it’s quite likely that this squirrel doesn’t actually have firm breasts that produce its awe-inspiring cleavage. Instead, this could just be an optical illusion brought on by the way it placed its hands on its chest that puts its fur in a bunch.
Regardless, many netizens still think the pose is weirdly sexy. Here’s what some of them said, as translated by SoraNews24:
“She’s totally my type.”
“It is imitating a human woman covering her nipples?”
“She’s got kyonyu.”
“I bet she’s the guradoru of the squirrel world!”
“Or maybe she’s an AV (animal video) actress?”
“She reminds me of Disney’s Clarice.”
After witnessing the potential cuteness of squirrels, the Twitter user then decided to create an anthropomorphic character inspired by the animal that he proudly calls Shimada Arisu, which is a wordplay of shima risu, a chipmunk in Japanese.
