Las Vegas: Ground Squirrel at the Red Rock Canyon 紅岩峽谷地松鼠

This guy was the highlight of my trip to the Red Rock Canyon in March. A white-tailed antelope ground squirrel, I think.

看到這隻白尾羚羊地松鼠是我三月去紅岩峽谷最歡樂的一刻。

Ground squirrel is one of the most spotted animals in the Red Rock Canyon. The visitor center had a photo of a ground squirrel stealing food from a tortoise. So cute! They look like closer relatives to chipmunks than to squirrels. I had to look it up, and then found out that chipmunks have alternating light and dark stripes on their faces and ground squirrels don’t.

地松鼠是紅岩峽谷最常見的動物之一,遊客中心有一張照片是地松鼠搶陸龜的飯吃,超可愛!他們長得實在像是應該要叫花栗鼠而不是松鼠,查了才知道原來差別是花栗鼠臉上有黑白相間的條紋,地松鼠沒有。

We saw him in front of the Calico Hill. I was chasing him around. After a little while, he was not scared of us anymore. This photo below was 55mm and no cropping! He was so close! I think we officially became friends.

我們在Calico Hill前面看到這隻地松鼠,我一直跟蹤他,沒過多久,他就不怕我們了。下面這張照片是55mm沒有裁!他離我超近,我們簡直是變朋友。
