Columbian Ground Squirrels

Just wondering if anyone has kept this species as a pet and if they make good pets?

I stumbled across a broker who is selling them (good old Ratkateers!): http://www.ratkateersrodentry.com/cu...=49&shopperid=

I believe it is a new thing this year, the brokers who used to make money off of the Prairie Dogs, are trying to find a replacement. I think last year it was the RGS, but they aren't as popular as PDs.

There is a little bit of info on Central Pets site about them.

I have heard the RGS don't make as good of pets as the PD's, they don't bond as easily which is why I'm wondering about these Columbian GS..
