Fun Facts

Get to know Ms. Pearl, the Giant Squirrel

People come from all over the country just to see me, but the Pecan Pie and the charming gift shop here at Berdoll Pecan draw a pretty big crowd, too.

Here are a few interesting things about me:

I’ve lived here since August 2011.

My name was given to me by a customer of Berdoll Pecan Candy and Gift Company. There was a contest to see who could come up with the best name, and “Ms. Pearl” won. It’s sassy, fun and it suits me perfectly. Don’t you agree?

At 14 feet tall, I’m the largest squirrel statue in the world.

People take my picture anywhere from 30 to 100 times a day.

I had a makeover in June of 2015. I received a coat of fresh paint and a brand new deck. It’s easy to climb up and give me a hug.

I’ve been on TV and in print so many times, I’ve lost count., and are among those who have featured me.

Rare™ named me one of the “10 Weirdest Things in Texas You Have to See to Believe”.

Racecar driver Rodney Sterling Jr. is one of my biggest fans. He even posed for a picture with me, holding his pet finger monkey.

I’m so popular, I have my own online photo gallery. Get your picture taken with me and send a copy to me here. I’ll post it in my gallery!
