Seeking current info on Mohave Ground Squirrel
I am planning a trip that will take me to California, to the Red Rock Canyon / California City / Fremont Peak general area for a few days this coming March. Does anyone have any current information on sites for Mohave Ground Squirrel? I see that both Jon and Vladimir saw them in Desert Tortoise Natural Area in 2011 and 2016, respectively, but that Venkat had no luck in 2021. There are quite a few iNaturalist records (which are obscured for this species) that look like they are probably from the Fremont Peak area, all seemingly from a stationary trail cam of unknown specific location, so the dense scatter of dots in the area is probably really only one den. Anyway, that is all I have been able to find, and I am hoping someone on this forum has recent information. I have a Subaru Forester, so can handle off-pavement driving, but am not super confident on sand or where the road conditions are too hairy.
Thanks in advance!
