Scrat tattoo means persistent pursuit of happiness. The ice age tells that the earth is in the ice age, and animals have to go to warm places to store food. But mammoths, sloths and Saber Toothed tigers delayed their journey in order to send human babies back to their parents. In addition to these, do you still remember the unlucky “squirrel” Scrat who was preoccupied with acorns in the film?
The prototype of Scrat in real life is not a squirrel, but a tree shrew. Tree shrews do look like squirrels in shape, but their tails are smaller than squirrels. Moreover, tree shrews are omnivorous animals, unlike squirrels, which eat pinecones. Tree shrews are one of the most primitive rare animals, known as “living fossils”. It mainly exists in the South and southeast of Asia. Scrat in the film has a crazy pursuit of acorns, while tree shrews in real life love spicy food!
