    Here is a squirrel that came to visit us on the beach.
    Anyone know what type he is? Very cool markings.

    This is what I was thinking at first but, it has such a mix of other looks to it.

    Color patterns will vary from habitat to habitat ... whatever the animal needs to blend into its environment. It's a California Ground Squirrel. I could have put up more pictures showing different color variations ... I just opted not to.

    I am glad he didn't bite your ear lobe, thinking it was some sort of snack. That is one friendly little Squirrel

    There were 3 or 4 of them and they weren't real afraid of us. They were all over me and my son. Any time we sat down next to the rocks, they would come out to check us out.
