Red Car Canyon: Jabba The Squirrel

Photo: Diane Edwardson, May 19, 2016.  There always seems to be at least one obese squirrel with a bad attitude living in Red Car Canyon. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Jabba The Squirrel doesn't so much scamper through the densely forested section of the Red Car Property, as he lumbers through.  Before the Silver Lake Fire, I'd often see him lying on one of the branches of the now dead, non-native walnut tree.

Perhaps since the Silver Lake Fire and subsequent tree decimation on the south end of the property and the 2 Freeway, Jabba is more secretive in his whereabouts.  He would be a feast for the local Red Tailed Hawks.
