Nature Newsflash: Squirrels do not have short tailsSTUPIDITY WARNING
This is a chipmunk. We had never seen a chipmunk before, except in cartoons.
"Hey, that baby squirrel was hanging out on the porch," I said. "That's really cute."
"I think that's a short-tailed squirrel," Gloria said.
"Is that a thing?" I asked.
"I'm not sure," she said. "I think so."
Yes, we need to brush up on our chipmunk identification skills. It's embarrassing.
