Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel

I found this very obliging and friendly ground squirrel on the east side of the river a few weeks ago :

I would think you'd be able to sell some prints of this little guy. Cute sells.

Oh my gosh - how cute is that? And John's right - that would be a seller.

Thanks guys. These aren't nearly as tame as this. I was sitting on the ground next to him about 2 meters away.
I agree that cute definitely sells !

Its fascinating to see differing species in the west as we do not have this species in the east. It is a lovely looking species with all of its stripes!
