Baby Ground Squirrel
Winter is barely over when the baby ground squirrels (also known as the prairie gopher) are born. At first completely dependent on their mother, the little ones will grow up quickly. By midsummer their parents will disappear underground again to snooze the rest of the season away. And now the young ones face the world alone, as they fatten themselves up for the long winter ahead.
