JASPER AND BEAR SERIES
The photo above is a baby ground squirrel. It was about the size of a chipmunk (below) when this was taken. Full grown they will be twice this size or larger. FYI: Chipmunks have stripes all the way up their head to their little pointed noses. Ground squirrels do not have stripes on their head -- only on their sides and back.
"Ask not what an animal can do for you; ask what you can do for an animal." Jasper
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
