Calling all animal-lovers

So we went for a walk by the river and saw this little chappie come out of a big hole in the rocks, apparently disturbed by the revving up of a water scooter. Is it a beaver? A chipmunk? A giant mouse? A hare?

Help me out, good folks..I'm dying of curiosity.

    LOL! I love all these little animal photos people are posting! In my neighbourhood I think I would only find rats!

  2. Purplesque says:

    Lol..thats what hubby said, 'Look, A giant rat!' But I sincerely hope it wasn't so.

  3. wow. How big?Looks bunny-ish, but I'm not good at this. Was it rabbit-size? Big bunny size?Chipmunks are small — like big hamsters (they're everywhere here).Mice, littler.

  4. Purplesque says:

    Big bunny size. And it was living in a burrow..

  5. Maybe a big bunny, hare….I can't see the ears….

  6. Purplesque says:

    I couldn't, either..but that's what I thought.

  7. I was thinking maybe prairie dog but I don't know where you are/were and I don't know their area either (I don't know much — lol)

  8. Purplesque says:

    Oh Robbie, you are exactly right! Thats exactly what it looked like..the right size, and it was prairie-dogging..peaking out in response to the noise! Woo-hoo..this is cool. Thanks a ton..:))( I checked..there are prairie dogs in this area.)

  9. Oh, that's so fabulous!! They look adorable in pix — !!!!!!

  10. Purplesque says:

    I need to make sure and go by there more often..maybe get better pics. They are So cute.

  11. Purplesque says:

    Possums are scary! I think this one was a prairie dog, like Robbiedobbie said. ( Personally all I recognize are rabbits and squirrels.)

  12. So you probably saw a prairie dog! Lucky you! I never have my camera when I need to snap photos of interesting animals.
