Abstract

TOWARDS the end of the summer of 1955 we received, through the kindness of Dr. J. E. Moore (University of Alberta), a number of golden mantled ground squirrels (Citellus lateralis). These animals had been trapped during August–September in the Turner Valley, Alberta, and were shipped to Toronto by express. Our stock was further replenished in the same manner during the summer of 1956.
