For the largest North American squirrel, it's still pretty small; the last photo puts this into perspective. It has a spotted coat and often stands on its hind legs to emit a high-pitched “chip” when it sees a predator (in this case, humans!).
Spotted in the tundra at an altitude of about 3500' in Denali National Park during the summer time.
Siksik is the Inuit name.
