Like in our own cities, conservation areas and parks here in Canada, squirrels are a common sight if not a nuisance, but we still adore their sweet little faces and comical antics. One morning, as Bob and I waited near Bright Angel Lodge for a Fossil Walk to begin, this Rock Squirrel kept us company on the rock wall that separates pedestrians from the sheer cliff below. The Rock Squirrels at Grand Canyon National Park have become quite the pesky rodents owing, in large part, to the bad habits of humans who have insisted on feeding them. As a consequence, Rock Squirrels throughout the Park have become habituated to the presence of people, come begging for food, and will unerringly slip into any unsealed backpack, bag, purse or satchel that is not sealed up tightly.

Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I [am] the LORD that maketh all [things]; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; Isaiah Who would have thought that squirrels would tell us how old the Grand Canyon is? Yet, creation scientists tell us that the tassel-eared squirrel, who lives near the rim of the canyon in Arizona, has done just that. Tassel-eared squirrels are found on both the north and south rims of the canyon.
