BTW, it bothered me so I looked it up.Callospermophilus
is literally CALLO (hard or thick), SPERM (seeds; "semen" is the other stuff), and PHILUS (affinity).
This means it's a ground squirrel that likes thick-coated seeds
. It also eats crackers, peanuts, combos, chips, corn, and white bread. I DID NOT FEED IT MYSELF, BUT APPARENTLY MOST EVERYONE ELSE WHO STOPS THERE DOES!!
Yeah, it just kills me that people do that. Tourists at the beach think it's cool to feed the seagulls, only to find out that they fly around and poop on everything. And don't get me started about the dolts that feed alligators.
