Antelope Squirrel

Antelope Squirrel at White Tank Regional Park:

So cute!

It was funny, because I was on 10-mile hike, probably almost 9 miles into it, and I hadn't seen any mammals.  Lizards:  check.  Two vultures playing in the wind:  check.  Various other birds:  check.  Squirrels, rabbits, packrats, javelina, coyotes:  nothing.  Then finally I saw this little guy.  Literally 2 minutes down the trail I saw another.  Then, just beyond that, a rock squirrel.  They must have been having a rodent convention.
