Pocket Gophers in Colorado


mancos colorado gopher controlPocket Gophers may be small, but they are extremely powerful burrowing rodents. For a vast majority of the time, they live and feed underground away from sight.

Aside from the common pocket gopher, the other gopher species found in southwest Colorado include the Northern Pocket Gopher and Botta’s Pocket Gopher.

While they usually have brown fur that closely matches the soil they live in, they can also be grey in color. The term “pocket” comes from one of their most noticeable characteristics, their large cheek pouches.

Gophers dig extensive burrow systems that provide protection and is a means of collecting food. These tunnel systems can easily be spotted with dirt piles that are sized anywhere from a baseball to the size of a bucket.
