Barbary Ground Squirrel / Borstenhoernchen

Barbary Ground Squirrel / Borstenhoernchen
Sniffing a rock and displaying it's striped back, reminescent of a very young wild boar piglet. Only that tail is even cuter, of course / Es schnueffelt an einem Stein und zeigt sein gestreiftes Rueckenfell, das ein ein sehr junges Wildschweinbaby erinnert. Nur der Schweif ist natuerlich noch niedlicher als ein Ringelschwanz.

Reminds me of a Prairie Dog, except for the tail. Cute little critter.

It looks cute and funny and tourists like cute and funny. 1965 a single pair of pets where turned loose. Today they are prolific anywhere on the island, and are treated as a mascot wth lots of own postcards, outnumbering even goats as poster animal..
