Move Over, Pizza Rat: Egg Roll-Eating Squirrel Is Here to Claim Viral Video Fame

Urban wildlife is just like us! (Hungry.)

If you cannot easily conjure in your mind's eye the viral video star known as Pizza Rat — let us help you. In 2015, the urban rodent went viral for claiming an entire slice of New York City pizza for its wee self, dragging it down a flight of subway stairs in an impressive conquest. To date, it has nearly 11 million views on YouTube. 

It was a nice run, Pizza Rat, but it's time for some stiff competition at the top of the hangry urban wildlife food chain: Enter... Egg Roll Squirrel.

In a short video clip shared by the Twitter feed @whatisNY, our hero positively chows down on a human-sized egg roll, handled dexterously by the animal holding court in a tree. As the caption notes, "Doesn't look like this squirrel's first egg roll."

Behold:

The seven-second clip — which is either adorable or repulsive — has already racked up 338,000 views.
