Columbian Ground Squirrel

I found this cute columbian ground squirrel in Sunshine Meadows in Banff National Park. They’re super tame in the parks, which is cool for taking pictures, but a little disturbing too. I think it was looking for a handout.

You can’t see it very well in this picture, but this guy has some serious claws. I’ll just happily continue assuming they’re for digging.
