That’s nuts! Scot captures hilarious photo of squirrel in Mr Universe pose

A SCOT was left in stitches after spotting a hench squirrel giving his best Mr Universe-style pose outside his window.

David Roberts was surprised when he spotted the photogenic grey squirrel posing away on his window sill in Glasgow on Friday.

The 65-year-old managed to quickly grab his camera phone and capture the proud animal as he held his position to give his best bodybuilding style pose.

A hilarious image shows the squirrel twisting around to look right down the lens of the camera.

His little brown claws appear to be tense and almost touching below his puffed out chest.

And his legs have remained positioned forward while his upper body has turned around to face David – reminiscent of a pose held by Mr Universe contestants.

David posted the hilarious image onto Facebook on Friday where the muscular squirrel, dubbed Arnold Squirrelzenegger, has become an instant hit.
