The Pocket Gopher is a burrowing rodent found throughout North America and extending into Central America. The pocket gopher is an underground dweller, only occasionally coming above ground at night to feed or migrate. It has a brownish fur coat that never gets dirty and fur lined external cheek pouches in which food is carried. There are 35 species of pocket gophers that vary in size. Length of head and body is 5 to 12 inches with 2 to 4 inches of hairless tail that they use to guide themselves backwards in their tunnel. The pocket gopher has front teeth that never stop growing and powerful front claws that never stop digging. Altogether, he is a destructive, eating and digging machine capable of 150 feet of new tunnel a day.
