Richard Johnson - research scientist

Rich is a sciurid rodent and is related to ground squirrels and prairie dogs.  After spending the summer eating a mostly vegetarian diet, he hibernates the rest of the year.  When alarmed by predators, such as golden eagles, Rich will whistle loudly before popping back inside his hole.  He enjoys gnawing salty wrist straps off of trekking poles that hikers have carelessly set aside during rest breaks.
