Now officially known as the Tassel-eared Squirrel, yours being the “Northern” ssp.

“Abert’s” and “Kaibab” are to the south.

I did not know this thing. I shall relabel it in my file. Thanks Seanbirds!

Depending on the time of the year it may just be shedding it's winter coat.

What time of year was this? Looks like it’s shedding its winter coat.

The photo was taken last week. Do they shed their coats this late in the year? I saw lots of other pronghorns that didn’t appear so scruffy.

Probably just needs to do a good dirt bath and squirm on it's back on the ground.

@Aidan B, I'm assuming another western fence lizard? Orange county, Ca. 

Uh, It's really sharp, but whatbird really decreased it's quality.

Double edit: Tap the photo to see what it normally looks like.

Definitely a Western Fence Lizard
