This tiny cutie was photographed yesterday at the Red Rock Scenic Overlook. There must have been a dozen of them scurrying about just beyond the block wall in the scrub. Zip, there goes another squirrel!
They dig up something from the sand and dirt and eat it. I wonder what they are eating? You can read more about the Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel here. The beautiful Mojave Desert always surprises you!
