One of the best customer product reviews of all time! Sometime things do come if you provide for it. More backyard fun for the family

Yes, I was looking to buy a Squirrel Lunch Box today (Saturday, May 12th) at the local Petsmart on 136.  I have been looking for one to supplement my front and backyard bird feeders (see SDU April 2nd post: A must read: Miami Herald’s "The wildlife is in thebackyard". I would suggest a friendly competition / coordination between the sister cities to surpass Broward County in creating more backyard retreats).  This article has some photos of area wildlife attracted to our Palmetto Bay home.

 So who wouldn’t want to add a Squirrel Feeder? Squirrels are actually quite entertaining.

Obviously I am not alone in that thought as the store shelves were empty of the $27.99 squirrel lunch box this day.  Impulsive as I am, I then traveled online to find another local source to purchase a squirrel feeder (BTW, shop local – avoid Showrooming).

I found the Squirrel Lunch Box on the Petsmart online catalog and I just had to share the single review with all of you.  Hopefully you will find it just as amusing as I did:

Review: I bought this and put it in my backyard. Trust me it does not only attract squirrels but also bears, raccoons, skunks and yeah. if you want your backyard full of wild animals, then this product is for you!

Personally i returned it! I don't need wild animals in my backyard.

Pros: feeding animals!
Cons: attracts more than just squirrels

Doesn’t “need wild animals” in their backyard?  Really, what did the reviewer expect to happen?  Now I am double pumped to get the Squirrel Lunch Box.  Just the thought of adding bears and skunks to our Palmetto Bay backyard menagerie really adds to the excitement (hold on, yes, I realize that there will be no bears or skunks in Palmetto Bay).  There were skunks at one time in the Deering Estate area of Palmetto Bay, but they may have been wiped out by the feral Boa population.

    Any peacocks?

    On our 5 acre hammock, we have hundreds of squirrels but haven't seen a rabbit for some time. Pythons?

  4. Always a possibility. Feral constrictors appear to be everywhere including Palmetto Bay, including a 13 foot Burmese python capture in a Palmetto Bay pool on Christmas Day I also separately posted a photo taken taken on October 12, 2005, which shows one of Palmetto Bay's original policing unit officers and high school friend, Ofc Randy DiStefano, participating in the capture of a non-native snake.
