Spotted Ground Squirrel (Xerospermophilus spilosoma)

29 July 2017
Mustang Island State Park
9394 TX-361
Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas 78418

We parked near the entrance and this female ground squirrel unafraid of humans apparently begged for food. So we shared a few raw almonds. A male Great-tailed Grackle noticed the activity and as we began to leave the squirrel behind it came under attack by the Great-tailed Grackle who wanted its food and gave chase. After running around a bit the ground squirrel dove into a burrow at the base of a nearby tree and it was gone, game over. Spotted Ground Squirrel appears to have a shorter tail, like the one in these images, than that of Rio Grande Ground Squirrel. Both Spotted Ground Squirrel and Rio Grande Ground Squirrel (Ictidomys parvidens) occur at the site. Made a quick call on the species, might be, could be, the other? @marcelo_aranda
