Rock Squirrel (Spermophilus variegatus)
Wt=21-28 oz (600-800g); L=17-21" (430-540 mm) with the tail another
7-10" (172-252 mm). Largest ground squirrel in its range (southwest).
Grayish-brown and mottled above, lighter below. Long, bushy tail and large
ears make it look like a tree squirrel, but it spends most of its time
on the ground.
