With all the tricks, glitches and discoveries spotted in Zelda: Breath of the Wild over the past few years, it's reached a point where seeing new things doesn't surprise us any more. This thing will keep on giving more for years and years to come, and we love it.

For example, did you know that – rather than taking on Ganon and saving the world – you can instead opt to take a break and feed some squirrels? If you find a spot where squirrels are running around, drop an acorn somewhere on the ground and run away. They won't come anywhere near you if you stay close to the acorn, but using the game's camera, you can zoom in and watch the cute little phenomenon from a distance.

The little tail wiggle. Too cute.

This isn't the first time a player's spotted a squirrel having its dinner – in fact, the acorn's in-game description kind of alludes to the possibility that squirrels might eat them – but a quick conversation in the office reveals that plenty of us had never seen or heard of this.

One of the earliest mentions we can find online was posted on Reddit a while back. Here's another look:

So, have you ever noticed a squirrel eating in the game before? How many weird and wonderful things go on in Breath of the Wild's Hyrule without us spotting them? What a game, huh?
