Sorry shorty, but if you wanna tweet you need to travel 50 miles due east and take a perch at the Snake 'n Bait truck stop on Highway 10.  We got no cell towers in Goffersaken County.

On my cross continent drive, I saw and photographed a number of Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels.  Most were exactly what you would expect: sleek, agile creatures of nature.

However, while walking along Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park (Alberta) on August 23, I saw an unusual one.  To put it as politely as possible... he was a real tubby.  I'd never seen a squirrel (of any type) nearly this chubby.  As I was trying to understand how he could have gotten this way, he wandered over near me and took a seat.  Then I understood.....

This squirrel is a couch potato!  I was half expecting him to pull out a tiny bag of chips...

Photoshop image.  The birds are not in the same scale.  The interaction is not natural.
