Some McDonald's Fans Left Disappointed Over Triple Cheeseburger

A squirrel's diet would typically be herbivorous, but some squirrels will eat meat if they're hungry.

They have also been known to eat small birds, young snakes and smaller rodents, plus bird eggs and insects.

In fact, some tropical species have shifted almost entirely to a diet of insects.

This isn't the first time animals have been spotted tucking into a pile of fast food.

Back in May, a lizard that binged on pizza grease was found in Cocoa Beach, Florida, horrifically bloated after digesting some sand that had got into its food.

By the time it was found, faeces was found to make up around 80 percent of its body mass.

Speaking at the time, herpetologist Natalie Claunch said: "To our knowledge, this represents the largest faeces-to-body-mass ratio recorded in a living animal."

And that's not all. In 2015, footage began doing the rounds on social media of a rat dragging a huge slice of pizza in New York.

Known as 'Pizza Rat', the rodent has picked up 11 million views on YouTube.
