Urocitellus parryii, the Arctic ground squirrel
Denali Borough, Alaska (31 May 2011).
Day 01 of the 2011 Roadtrip from Alaska to Florida (Mile 0253 of 7221).
The Arctic ground squirrel at times felt like a Lower 48 squirrel and prairie dog had some sort of mutant baby. Heh. Adorable little squats that would chill out in the plenty of time.
