Californian ground squirrels

Californian ground squirrels

Adult California ground squirrels have a protein in their blood that allows them to survive rattlesnake bites. The squirrels also heat up their tail and wave them to let the rattlesnake know they are aware of them since rattlesnakes have infrared vision. They don't do this with other snakes.
