AUBURN, MAINE- A teenager's attempt at a selfie with a squirrel didn't go quite as planned.

Brian Genest says he saw what appeared to be a friendly squirrel in a park when he took a trip to a college in Florida.

He took the selfie in John Chestnut Park near Tampa but the squirrel got spooked by the noises of the camera and the flash.

It jumped under his shirt and clung to his back.

His mom took photos of the drama and posted them on her son's Facebook page and says he wasn't hurt.

She says he got close to the squirrel to pose for the picture by making clicking sounds with his tongue.
