If you get a Big Head Squirrel Feeder, you'll be able to simultaneously nourish and shame the squirrel population.

Screen Shot 2012-12-03 at 9.08.57 PM

Hang the hollow vinyl feeder in front of a window or near a porch, fill it with something squirrels find delicious, and try to contain your excitement.

When a squirrel sticks his head in for a snack, he'll look like he has a comically-oversized head and a goofy bucktoothed smile.

Perfect for birdwatchers, nature lovers, or anyone who thinks squirrels could use a lesson in humility.

Feeder has holes in the ears for hanging with string (not included).

$15.
