Icarus the RGS

As I posted recently, my sister purchased a Richardson's Ground Squirrel. Personally, I don't know much about them at all, so I assume (and hope) that she knows what she's doing as she says Anyway, just thought I'd go ahead and share the few pics I was able to get while I was over there this morning.

(I wasn't sure where to post this, but in searches it seems as though many RGS owners post in the PD section)

Sorry about the picture quality - was in a rush and I had to resize for attachments.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4)

Hehe, thanks, I thought so too. I just had some play time with the little guy. He is just so fun to be around. He tolerates any handling, he takes any food from your hands, he loves to climb up on you to "get a look around," he's just a blast. I've never had so much fun with a small mammal. I'll get vids next time I get around.

Anyway, I found out the the store had five of them to begin with, and that two of them got loose and are somewhere in the store I don't really know what they expected, though. I mean, they don't keep tops on any of the enclosures - that means people can freely pick up anything (rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, mice, rats, macaws, cockatiels, parakeets, chinchillas, guinea pigs, etc etc etc) and this place has a lot of animals. It's already a bit of a bother when I see unsupervised little kids treating the animals roughly, chasing loose hamsters on the ground, dropping them. It's a sad sight, really. But the idea that animals are escaping in the store just seems to scream "CLOSE US UP."

Sorry, sorry. I know that was off topic, but it was on my mind.

I'd like to close again by restating that Icarus is a blast

Went back and got some vids. Unfortunately, I only had my camera available so the quality is very poor. Even worse: I took quite a few videos and only one of them is properly uploading

And finally, Icarus was in a hunting mood today rather than a playful mood, so he wouldn't relax until we gave him a snack, hehe.
