New Trip Report – Western USA
Western USA, 2014: Janco van Gelderen, 3 weeks & 41 species/ssp including Bobcat, Grizzly and Long-tailed Weasel. (Lots of great photos though it also means the file is 15mb)
Nice report. I have spent a lot of time at Craters of the Moon. The cottontails there are all mountain cottontails (and are quite common there and in surrounding areas). There are both yellow-pine and least chipmunks. The yellow-pine chipmunks are quite common there as well. If you’re ever in the area again, let me know and I’ll show you some other nearby ground squirrel species. And as Vladimir says, there are not nutria in Yellowstone. Matt

There are no nutrias in Yellowstone, and the chipmunk on the photo is not a Least (my guess would be Allen’s, but it’s better to check).
