“Baby Daisy” is a California Ground Squirrel. She has four brothers and sisters and is approximately 7 weeks old! She’s actually very small; she just looks bigger in the photos and I’m sure she likes that. Like most kids, they want to grow up fast and be treated as adults. Baby Daisy lives in the wild in San Diego and loves to scout around. She is the least shy of her brothers and sisters and was curious enough to allow me to take these photos. She is so adorable, isn’t she? It’s rare to get a glimpse of a baby squirrel in the wild, so I feel blessed to have taken her picture. A few weeks after this photo was taken, she would already be almost twice her weight!
