When I spotted this little guy Saturday, he seemed to pretty well expect breakfast from me as it came sauntering right up. It probably has learned that tourists can be a good source although feeding them does them great harm. I of course only took pictures of it and left it hungry. Notice those crazy long nails on it!
Wyoming Ground Squirrels are medium size squirrels 10 to 12 inches in length. They favor open range land like in the Moraine Park area of Rocky Mountain National Park where this picture was taken.
