This little scamp is really getting into the seasonal spirit as he scares onlookers with a skull suspended on a string.
The grey squirrel turned up in the garden of Vicky Freeman's home in Fareham, Hamshire, and made short work of the treats she'd hidden inside the macabre mask.
The 54-year-old grandmother said: 'I always hang stuff up in my garden for the kids at Halloween but was surprised to see a squirrel so fascinated by the macabre skull it - looks really scary!'

Lawn of the dead: Grandmother Vicky Freeman was startled to see this scary-headed rodent in her garden
Getting into the swing of things: Vicky hung up the treats for her grandchildren, but the squirrel got there first
A furry fiend: The squirrel faces down the Halloween horror, before having a go himself!
The squirrel was certainly more taken with his Halloween decorations than silverback gorilla K**buka.
Keepers at Paignton zoo in Devon had put together a pile of pumpkins for the 28-stone ape, but he wasted no time in tearing it apart.
Luckily K**buka didn't manage to throw the jack o' lanterns far enough to clear the moat of his enclosure.
The 15-year-old silverback came to Paignton from La Boissiere Zoo in France, and is expected to leave his Devon home within months to start a new breeding group at London zoo.
No time for this nonsense: K**buka the silverback gorilla looks unimpressed with his Halloween surprise
Don't argue! The 15-year-old silverback weighs in at 28 stone
Yesterday, Halloween toys were going down a treat with animals at Woburn safari park.
Cheeky monkeys and rig-tailed lemurs at the Bedfordshire attraction looked delighted to be messing around with macabre masks and dark disguises.
Staff at Woburn put mashed banana on the back of the Halloween masks to tempt the lemurs, who live in a ‘walk-through’ section of the park.

AGH ... AGH ... AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!
Love the Halloween mask - very laughable indeed! Couldn't stop laughing every time a new photo appeared!
I suppose the squirrel is cute, even if rather greedy
Funny ! Thanks for the laughs.
Bwahahahahahaha - Love it
A bit off the topic, I must say the silverback is just beautiful !
