Patients of the day: Eastern Gray Squirrels

This pair of siblings are both Eastern Grays but the black squirrel has a rare coloration (melanism) that occurs in only about 1% of all Eastern Gray squirrels. Interestingly enough, this rare coloration has independently evolved in Eastern Gray Squirrels and Eastern Fox Squirrels🤔

Patient of the day: Desert Tortoise 🐢

A very rare patient for us to receive! This one was found wandering down a residential street - a bit out of place.

Desert Tortoises are a threatened species and you are required to have a permit to take care of them in captivity.

We have already found a foster home for him until he can find a permanent home!

Patient of the day: Horned lark!
This species gets its name from their short black horn-like feathers at the top of their heads that they can actually move up and down which is why the 'horns' are not always visible
