Mammals

 

As of August 2019, my newest nature section, so very few images to begin with.


Colorado or Least Chipmunk (Tamias [or Neotamias] quadrivittatus or minimus

 

Chipmunk species are not easy to tell apart. I know that these photos are of one of two species, the Colorado chipmunk or the least chipmunk, because those are the only two species documented for the Sandia Mountains.


Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrel (Callospermophilus lateralis)

 

According to the Los Alamos Nature Center, "The Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel is similar to a chipmunk with the same overall appearance. However, the ground squirrel lacks the chipmunk’s facial stripes."


Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus)
