Wildlife: European Suslik
The European Suslik Citellus citellus (also spelled Souslik) is an endearing little rodent found on steppes and short-grazed land in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans. It lives in colonies, in separate burrows, from which it emerges in March and April. This photo taken in Bulgaria by Mladen Vasilev.
