Nature Newsflash: Squirrels do not have short tails


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.
