Back in 2005 when i was working at the Grand Canyon South Rim, I would walk to and from work when the weather was good. Sometimes I would run into some wildlife. While walking home one afternoon, I came across an Abert Squirrel. They are distantly related to the famed Kaibab Squirrel on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. At one time they were the same species; however, being separated by the Grand Canyon for thousands of years, they have evolved into unique species. This little guy was playful and didn’t mind posing for his cameo.
