The thirteen-lined ground squirrel (Ictidomys tridecemlineatus, formerly Spermophilus tridecemlineatus) is a diurnal, hibernating ground squirrel that is native to the grasslands of central North America. Ground squirrels such as the thirteen-lined ground squirrel are a useful model system for the study of vision and metabolism. Squirrels More...
