Forgive my ignorance. What is squirrel tail?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Forgive my ignorance. I do not know what, "squirrel tail," is. Yes, I know what a squirrel's tail is like. Can you show me a picture of it, so I can figure it out, please?

RIP my son, Michael Bonham, Jr. 1972-2013

A son, brother, friend, wrestler, father, Army Airborne Ranger, wrestling coach, and so much more....

A memorial video with some of his (too short) life HERE.

Don't have one with it at the moment, but a tail that arches back over the back toward the head would be a squirrel tail.

Japanese bantams have it.  It's a bit funny looking.

A tail that's more upright than 90 degrees (vertical). People also sometimes call a tail carried at a high angle (but less than 90 degrees) a squirrel tail, but officially it's over 90.
