Barker Dam

Underground Dwellers

The vertical holes and mounds of dirt you may see around here are made by pocket gophers, who spend most of their lives underground. Generally they dig holes near good plant growth so food is only a short distance away. During long, dry periods, gophers stay in their deeper runs, depending on moist plant roots for food.

Kangaroo rats, antelope ground squirrels, and several other rodents add their tunnels and underground passageways beneath this desert floor. Walk gently, or you may collapse an apartment complex.
