You can find me high up in the mountains living in nests on talus slides. I am round and plump, I have stubby legs, and I am very fluffy.
You can find me in alpine mountain meadows, subathing on rocks and munching on alpine flowers.
Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrel
I like living in burrows under rocks. I also love exploring and finding goodies to stuff in my cheeks along the way.
I like scurrying around. Catch me if you can!
I like to scream at campers trying to pee in the woods!
I like to build dams and great homes along streams for my friends and family.
I'm a mini scanvenger, scurrying around looking for yummies!
Long Tailed Weasel
I like to eat innocent little mice for my supper. Mawahaha!
North American Porcupine
I like to chill in trees and knaw on bark.
I'm mischievous and sly. I love hunting for mice and voles. Its just a game of catch for me!
Go ahead. Mess with me! I dare you! If you annoy me, I am much faster than you are! Rawrrr!
I get no repect, especially from farmers, because I like to eat whatever they have wandering around out in their barn yard.
I like to lumber around and munch on berries, but I will eat about anything. But beware, dont mess with my kids!
Homo sapiens cognatus
If I wanted you to find me, you would have already. I enjoy my solitude and peace, just like Henry David Thoreau.
