"Sik Sik Shell Game"

Sik Sik is the Inuit word for the Arctic Ground Squirrel. Grizzly bears love to dig for them in the soft tundra of interior Alaska. Often the squirrel's burrow has many tunnel entrances. While the grizzly is anxiously digging, the squirrel may escape out the back door. Sometimes, the bear sees the squirrel leave, pursues it to another hole, and starts digging all over again. This can go on for quite sometime. As in a Shell Game it is always a game of chance for both predator and prey.
