An orphaned baby ground squirrel arrives at Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation in Malibu, California and shows off his defensive posture during his initial checkup. Moments later he's safe and warm in an incubator, cuddled up with his siblings. He'll spend 3 months growing up at this all volunteer wildlife rehabilitation facility then he'll be released back into the wild to live out his happy ground squirrel life.

Location: Malibu, California
