Help wanted Pocket Gopher

Hi people,

Last week I posted my Youtube clips of my trip to the American west. I found a Pocket Gopher at the parking lot of Zion National Park, Utah.

Can anyone tell me which species?  I’m thinking of either Botta´s or Northern Pocket Gopher.

Hope to hear something soon,

Best regards,

    Looks like small ear spots. I am thinking Botta’s.

      I agree. NPG would usually have more prominent ear spots. Besdes, Zion is known for tame, surface-active BPG.
