7c. Ground Squirrel

Ground squirrels are common throughout California and Alum Rock is no exception. This one is hunched in its burrow, but these fetching rodents can often be seen sitting upright on their hind legs. When they feel threatened, they let out a metallic-sounding screech to warn its other family members.
