King of the Mountain

King of the Mountain

This particular Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel is more than likely the king of his domain, the summit of Avalanche Peak. Of the dozen or so squirrels I saw on the summit, his neck was the deepest in color - almost blood-red. That very deep color, generally present only on the most dominant males, has given this squirrel the knickname, copperhead. © Mike Hoyt, 9jul07.
