    Not familure at all with ground squirrels or in any area where I would be.
    Squirrels around here wouldn't even have fur at 23 grams let alone be with eyes open.

    We do have a forum in breed specific that mentions ground squirrels.
    Scroll through the attached link, it may provide some useful information.

    Just adorable. BTW, it is ROUND tail ground squirrel, not brown.

    I can't find any specific info on when eyes open but other similar small species like these little guys all seem to be around 5 weeks. His are wide open so I am guessing at least 6 weeks, maybe a little more. My mom lives in Tucson and seeing these little guys is always a treat.

    Thank you, you are correct it is round tail. Not sure why I wrote brown tail....
