This image shows a very rare and wild european groundsquirrel called ”Ziesel“ (Spermophilus). Unfortunately, Ziesel are near to extinction in Austria because of the loss of their habitats. Ziesel are always hungry and looking for something to eat. They have to build up fat reserves before they go into hibernation. In this picture you can see a Ziesel reaching out for a blowball. A few moments later the dandelion was totally devoured.
