Photo bombed?

The photo entitled "Another Go Pro Moment" really looks like you were photo bombed by the squirrel! I'm interested to learn more about what patterns you are finding in your captures so far this year. How many of your captured squirrels have been captured again? Have there been any surprises so far this year? Any new squirrels move into new territories? Is this the mating season for the squirrels when they emerge from hibernation? What is the gestation period of an arctic ground squirrel?

We've caught a couple squirrels more than once, but not too many yet. We haven't had time to analyze the data properly at this point, but we have captured some squirrels which have never been caught before, meaning they may have moved into the area recently, either permanently or for breeding, or have just evaded capture in the past seasons. Mating season is just beginning now, as the female start to emerge from their burrows. Be on the lookout for my next journal post, which gets into your other questions!
