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…
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 image shows that when provoked they will attack anything in sight, even if that means the tools of the trade!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
