Time For A Drink

An Antelope ground Squirrel sipping from a pond in the desert.They are around 14-17 cm long with a 6-10 cm tail, and weigh 110-150 grams. The tail is somewhat flattened. They have a single white stripe on the body and none on the face. They live in burrows, which they dig for themselves. They are diurnal, and do not hibernate (though they become less active during the winter), so they are fairly easily seen.This one was scurrying around in Green Valley Arizona right before sunset.
