The pair looks more like starved spacemen tucking into the tropical treats at the back of Jane Robert’s home in Fareham, Hants.
Miss Roberts, 46, leaves out two coconuts a week and suspends them on pieces of string from her washing line and watches her furry friends dig in.
She said: “The first time I saw them feeding I nearly died laughing, they looked like a pair of astronauts and even now I cannot stop chuckling every time I see them.
“I make a large hole in the coconut so they can get to the flesh. They cannot get enough of them.
“I worry they might get stuck up there one day but they are clever little things.”
