Default is fat always squishy?

I was trimming some steaks and it made me think -- is fat in us humans always squishy or can it be hard too? I thought of this question because the fat I was trimming off was really firm. I had always assumed that the fat on me was squishy but now I'm all .

As far as I know, fat is always squishy unless it is under the muscle or between the muscle. It is the reason that some people can have a big belly but it is firm. Their fat is actually under the muscle.

And was the meat right out of the fridge or did you warm it up to body temperature first? If our bodies were at a steady 42-45 degrees like the inside of a refridgerator I'm guessing our fat would firm up in a hurry too

Hey guys, thanks for the replies.

Thinking about it, I know some men who have big bellies that are very firm. I've never thought about whether women have the same thing going on. I only know my fat seems all squishy, and now realize how ignorant I am about this. Must do research.

And yes, this meat had been in the fridge, so it definitely was not anywhere near body temperature.
