Top 10 Images of Animals on Ladders

I used to work for a DIY / Ladder firm and I had to various posts about things to do with a ladder, and how to use them. But what I thought I would do is show fun images of animals on a ladder. I no longer work for them nowadays so I thought it would bring nice to look back on some of the silly images I had to find…

Red squirrel on double section extension ladder

10 – Red Squirrels go nuts for wooden ladders! (this is not been proven 100% yet)

This is a great image of a red squirrel who was trapped on a small grass clump in a river due to it being flooded. But when people saw it, and how distressed it was they called the local fire brigade who then rescued it. And you just know there is no “thank you for saving my life!” involved. But just click on the image for the full story.

Dachshund on a wooden apple picking ladder

9 – To Dachshunds the challenge of climbing a 4 tread orchard ladder is an achievement!

This cute chap is Crusoe, and he is advertised as the celebrity Dachshund! It seems he certainly has the lifestyle to pull that claim off as he does go on some amazing adventures, but here he is simply doing some orange picking.

Guinea pig on pole ladder made of sticks

8 – Guinea pigs don’t need our services they make their own ladders from sticks!

It seems even Guinea pigs have to work hard for their food because this poor chap has to go up and down his homemade pole ladder all day long! The life of a fruit farmer is never easy.

Sultan Chicks on an aluminum step ladder

7 – Place 3 Sultan Chicks on a step ladder and for some reason they instantly look cool!

I have to admit that this is the first time I have heard of a Sultan chick, seems that they originated from Turkey, and they got their name from the fact that they were the preferred ornamental breed for the Ottoman sultanate, and not used as food at all, but for decorative purposes! Yes, show chickens!

Bees on aluminum stepladder

6 – Want to see something cool? Paint some jam onto a stepladder!

The act of using a ladder to collect honey, or even just to remove a bees nest is a very dangerous one, and this images shows that when provoked they will attack anything in sight, even if that means the tools of the trade!

Iguana on a double section rope operated extension ladder

5 – Iguana’s always worked safely at height and use the safety ropes provided.

It turns out that Iguanas are in fact quite lazy and this one not only chased off the worker on this rope ladder but also used it to get access to the fruit at the top of the tree! I am surprised it didn’t just ask the worker to throw some down.

5 Chickens on a DIY stepladder

4 – The day we become vegetarians is the day chickens use step ladders! …carrot anyone?

This seems to look like a maths test question: How many chickens can you get on a 5 tread DIY stepladder? It turns out that the answer is 5, one per rung.

Butterfly on wooden step ladder

3 Let’s face it! no matter what a butterfly lands on it makes it look good, even stepladders!

Butterflies are amazing things indeed. (as seen in my post: Top 10 Most Amazing Butterflies ) and while waiting to take a picture of one, this lucky photographer gets his shot because it lands on the step ladder he was using! Very lucky indeed.

Sugar Glider on plastic toy ladder

2 We can’t work out which is more amazing, the “Sugar Glider” or the glitter ladder!

I featured these super cute creatures in my post “Top 10 Unusual Flying Animals” and everyone who ever sees them, loves them. But this one, who is just about to fly is in a plastic toy ladder! Ok, this is cheating a little bit because it is not a real ladder, but still very cool.

Liger on wooden ladder

1 – Ligers don’t really need ladders! (would not like to see this climb up at us)

If you thought a tiger or a lion was scary, check this guy out! This is Hercules and he is a liger! A hybrid cross between a male lion and a tigress simply makes it one of the largest big cats in the world!

  4. Loved the liger – now I want one. Besides climbing ladders, squirrels also steal bird feeders. I looked out my window and saw two of the little buggers working to free one of mine. When it dropped, they started dragging it between them and running. I ran out to yell at them and one turned and gave me the finger. Wish I had had the liger!

  5. You may not believe me, but until this very moment, I never even knew I was interested in animals on ladders…surprise! Charming post. Thanks for the levity on a Monday morning. πŸ™‚

  6. they are all good, but I do wonder how long it took to take the picture of the chickens all on the steps of the ladder? I mean just as you want to take the picture one will jump off! ha! Thanks for the smile. πŸ™‚

  7. Yes, the Sultan chickens are great, but there is something about the chickens on all levels of the ladder that tickles my fancy. Great job by John Ford – look forward to seeing more.

  8. These are all great photos with adorable animals (except maybe the bees)! I think I have to go with the sultan chicks though… I’ve actually never seen them before and they’re pretty adorable on that ladder!

  9. I don’t know where you keep getting these ideas, but please don’t stop. It’s the highlight of my internet-evening, guaranteed to make me grin or ‘awwww’ πŸ˜€
