Description

We observed a single Ringtail inside the Bunny Club at the Sweeney Granite Mountain Desert Research Center. It had crawled up through a small space between the boulder and the floor boards, sneaking up the face of the boulder to where some food scraps. The ringtail woud snatch some scraps, pause to put some food in its mouth, then dart back down the small opening between the boulder and floor boards. It paused just long enough for some good photographs.
