I saw this #squirrel a few lots down the street while I was out walking. It paused. I paused. I got my camera out. It stood up to look around. I kept my camera out. Then it slowly ran down the street almost but not quite in my direction until it passed about 4 feet away, then paused in the shade before continuing on its way. I think it started trying to determine whether I was a threat or not, and then whether I was likely to give it food or leave it alone. #nature
I see tree squirrels around town all the time, but this is the first ground #squirrel I’ve spotted in ages. You can tell by the narrower tail. and the pattern of the fur.
And when I moved too fast it dove into the hole instead of running off.
I’ve seen so many tree squirrels since I started on iNat, I can’t even remember the last time I saw a ground squirrel. At least, I think it’s a ground squirrel – something about the head shape, plus the narrower tail. And the iNat AI seems to agree.
Plus it was sitting in a hole and rushed underground instead of running away when I moved too quickly.
