what ate my watermelon?

This watermelon is only about five inches across. Could a squirrel do this or do we think it was a larger animal? The yard is fenced and I haven’t seen any deer or deer damage since the fence went in (about a year ago). The deer are also spooked by my dog, so i don’t think it’s deer. I have tons of squirrels who are stealing tomatoes, but I never thought they’d be able to gnaw through the melons!

The only other animals I see around here are chipmunks, fox small birds, and hawks (which seem unlikely). I’ve had some skunk damage in the yard (and smelled them).

I’m not super upset, but I’m curious!
