Since the dawn of the OG Pizza Rat, people across the nation have searched for the next viral animal-eating-pizza sensation.

While the internet has been blessed with the likes of the milkshake squirrel, kale puppy, and spaghetti rat, the universe may have to make room for one more ‘za-obsessed animal. World, meet Pizza Squirrel.

The outdoorsy creature was spotted on the property of a Colorado resident, resting upon a tree branch and coddling a nice big slice of pizza.

According to 9 News and other residents of the state, Pizza Squirrel is the perfect embodiment of Colorado; he loves climbing, nature, and obviously pizza.

Let’s be honest, it’s only a matter of time before this little creature becomes the next best Halloween costume.
