Getting squirrelly

Guys, guys, I said: Put your right foot in. Not: Shake it all about.
Round-tailed ground squirrels are my favorite desert mammals. (At least they are today.) Arizona is one of the very few places on earth where you can find this little guys. They go underground in the winter here, but they don't hibernate; they just slow down their metabolism - kind of like what hummingbirds do at night.
