It’s saturday nut fever! Sprightly squirrel caught ‘disco dancing’ as it hunts for food

It looks like a case of Saturday NUT Fever for this sprightly squirrel who was caught ‘disco dancing’ while searching for food.

The bushy-tailed John Travolta wannabe was spotted pulling some serious shapes as it foraged for nuts in a Russian forest.

The red squirrel looked a dead ringer for Tony Manero in the 1977 film, Saturday Night Fever, and was snapped by photographer, Evgeniya Levina.

The 47-year-old, from the Sakha Republic, said: “I had a feeling that the squirrel was dancing when I was shooting it but when I saw the shots at home I was absolutely sure it had been dancing.

“It was ‘posing’ for me for about 15 minutes and I managed to get a lot of shots.

“I always enjoy photographing animals, it gives me lots of energy.”
