Information About Gophers:
Pocket gophers take their name from fur-lined cheek pouches that they use for
carrying food and nesting materials. Pocket gophers are widespread throughout
much of the South, Midwest and Western United States. They are born diggers and
create elaborate tunnel systems. Like moles Pocket gophers have powerful
forequarters with large front paws. Oftentimes mistaken for chipmunks or
woodchucks Pocket gophers live in a burrow system that can exceed 2,500 square
feet. Their fine fur allows them to move easily through any type of soil. They
have a keen sense of smell and hearing which they use to locate food and avoid
predators. They have small eyes and sensitive facial whiskers to assist their
movements in the dark. Depending on species Pocket gophers vary in length from 7
to 12 inches.
