Round-Tailed Ground Squirrel

This is a darling little round-tailed ground squirrel we saw at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix Arizona.  We sat and watched him run around, diligently enlarge his burrow, have a snack, etc.  So cute.

These guys are native to the southwest.  They look a lot like prairie dogs, but aren't related.

If you're visiting Phoenix (or if you live here)--I highly recommend the Desert Botanical Garden.  I recommend going in spring.
