Arctic Ground Squirrel

The Arctic Ground Squirrel is the largest ground squirrel in North America. Growing up to 14 inches, it can be identified by its reddish face and sides, gray to brown fir with white flecks and brown under belly. Preferring bushy meadows, riverbanks, lakeshores and sandbanks, the arctic ground squirrel can be found in Alaska, the Yukon Territory, Northern British Columbia and the mainland of the Northwest Territory.
The eating habits of the arctic ground squirrel are plants, seeds, berries, willow leaves, mushrooms, grasses and flowers. During the summer months, these squirrels will double their weight to prepare for hibernation which lasts from September to April. The arctic ground squirrel is known to have the lowest body temperature of any mammal during hibernation bringing it below freezing. 
The burrow of an arctic ground squirrel is colonized by hundreds of squirrels, mainly females dominated and controlled by only a couple of males. Tunnels no deeper than three feet in the ground connect all of the colony burrows. The arctic ground squirrel remains active in the late afternoon to late evening and stays in its burrow on cloudy and rainy days. 
Known as “sik-siks” by humans because of their sounds alerting others to danger, the arctic ground squirrel is hunted by wolves, owls, eagles and grizzly bears that are able to dig up a whole system of burrows to catch the ground squirrels.
