Readers’ wildlife photographs

Why Evolution Is True

Reader Sarah, a biologist, sent a photograph of a squirrel which, like the palm squirrel we spotted (or didn’t spot) yesterday, looks like a chipmunk but also acts like a chipmunk, for it’s not a denizen of the trees. Behold the golden-mantled ground squirrel (Callospermophilus lateralis). Sarah’s notes:

We were walking down this trail to Bumpass Hell in Lassen National Park and I saw a little ground squirrel, but it had its head down eating, and I usually don’t stop to take pics if people are behind us, but I was like, “I need to get a good one for Jerry.” I said it aloud…and the squirrel turned and looked up as soon as I said it.


Look at that face!
