The Wild

Benny is a street-smart squirrel with great knowledge. He is the only one who knows Samson's secret. Benny also has a huge crush on Bridget, and at the beginning of the movie he asks her out, but she refuses. Benny is softhearted and sweet. However, he can be bossy at times. Benny is good friends with Samson and Larry, but doesn't always approve of Nigel's ideas. Benny also cares about Ryan and deeply loves Bridget, who later becomes his girlfriend after he says the proper words to motivate her.
