Ground squirrel

For Saturday´s Critters another photo from our holiday last September: during a hike as well as a picknick in Rocky Mountains National Park (Colorado, USA) we spotted several of these small squirrels. From the park website we learned that there are 10 different species living in the park, and this is a golden-mantled ground squirrel. They're brave, quick, good humoured by the look of it, and so funny to watch!


I'm linking to Saturday's Critters.

  5. Die zijn inderdaad opvallend aanwezig en als je niet uitkijkt duiken ze in je rugzak om te zien of daar nog iets te eten inzit. Sommigen zijn behoorlijk brutaal. Leuke foto.

  13. Well he is a cutie but these guys can be pests! I suspect a squirrel is feeding on my newly planted irises :( So glad you had the chance to visit the Rockies. I'd like to visit too.

  14. The colours remind me of a chipmunk, but this one looks decidedly bigger.

    In W.V., we have chipmunks, they're the only thing close.

  16. Unique and nice looking. Here they look the same, all smart with a nice brown colour, but not like this little cuty one you photographed.
