Join Lindsay Wildlife Experience in helping to name our newest animal ambassador: California Ground Squirrel!
This little lady came to Lindsay Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital in December 2014. Originally found as a baby, she was raised by humans but brought to Lindsay when her caregivers could no longer take care of her.
Young squirrels learn important skills from their mothers in the wild. Since she never learned these skills, she would be unable to survive in the wild. This is why it’s never a good idea to keep a wild animal as a pet.
Here she receives lots of specialized care and has plenty of logs, branches and leaves to run around on and dig in. Her favorite treat: banana.
