Nearly every part of Colorado is home to at least one species of ground squirrel. All ground squirrels are active in the day; most are common and readily identified and observed.

Nearly every part of Colorado is home to at least one species of ground squirrel. All ground squirrels are active in the day; most are common and readily identified and observed. Ground squirrels range in size from tiny spotted ground squirrels, barely larger than a chipmunk, to rock squirrels 20 inches long or as large as some tree squirrels . Range: On the grasslands of the eastern plains (and also in the southwest) are the thirteen-lined and spotted ground squirrels. Along the foothills and on western mesas and canyons lives the rock squirrel. The Wyoming ground squirrel lives in mountain parks and sagebrush-covered basins. The white-tailed Pronghorn squirrel lives in the hot desert shrub-lands of western valleys. And the golden-mantled ground squirrel lives throughout the mountains. Diet: Ground squirrels feed mostly on seeds and fruits, although most will eat flowers, buds and some leaves and insects as available. In fact, the thirteen-lined ground squirrel thrives on grasshoppers in season, making it a valuable citizen on grazing lands. Most ground squirrels store fat for the winter and are deep hibernators. The rock squirrel is an exception, arousing to feed periodically on stored seeds and acorns through the winter. Reproduction: Most ground squirrels mate in spring and have a single litter of a half dozen or more young a year after a gestation period of about a month. The rock squirrel is, again, the exception to the rule, females often has two litters.

  16. 16. Colorado Tree Squirrels Colorado is home to three kinds of tree squirrels. The rusty red fox squirrel: the Abert’s squirrel which has a striking black or salt-and-pepper gray coat and magnificent ear-tufts: and the smaller but noisier pine squirrel, or chickaree. Abert’s and fox squirrels are about the same size (up to 20 inches long and two pounds in weight), although Abert’s has longer fur and therefore looks larger. The pine squirrel is much smaller – up to 14 inches long and weighing only about nine ounces. http://wildlife.state.co.us/WildlifeSpecies/Profiles/Mammals/TreeSquirrel.htm
