A Furry Friend

I often wonder why these small animals seem to have such thick coats of fur when they live in the hot desert. Maybe the fur helps to keep them cool as well as warm? They do not come out during the hot part of the day, but if you look around in the early morning or just as the sun is going down, you can see quite a variety of animals in the desert. This is a round-tailed ground squirrel, in case you were wondering.
