Let’s not kid ourselves, finals week is the time we need stupid, adorable distractions the most. As our brains slowly return  from a mushy state after each completed exam, only cute animals provide the antidote that is needed for a full recovery. And so, we at the Clog are pleased to present you with “This week in squirrels!” Five photos of five Berkeley squirrels so that you can make it the end of the week without becoming a total nut job. Don’t over-think it.

Not satisfied with just hearing the hyena giggles that echo from the Berkeley hills (because there are apparently a bunch of hyenas just chillin’ up there — no big deal)? Want to know more? Then watch this video! You’ll learn things about language development. Which is obviously the most pressing reason to watch a video that features weirdly cute animals giggling and diving adorably into random vats of water.
