Franklin Ground Squirrels

Ground Squirrels    Franklin Squirrel Colony

The Franklin Ground Squirrel is in the largest group of mammals in its order (Rodentia) of non-flying mammals. It falls into the same order as rodents like prairie dogs, beavers and porcupines. Franklin Ground Squirrels are identified by their brownish gray upper body sprayed with black speckles, dark head and neck and gray feet. 
The Franklin Ground Squirrel colonizes with 50-100 squirrels per group. All the colonies make their burrows close together. They breed twice a year and deliver 2-13 blind, naked and hairless young. After a month, young Franklin Ground Squirrels leave the burrow looking for food. They eat green vegetation, seeds, grasses and insects. Very territorial, the Franklin Ground Squirrel spends most of its time underground. The colonies move their location several times during the season to be closer to food and away from predators.
Found in the eastern half of Kansas in dense grasses, weedy field and forests, the Franklin Ground Squirrel populations have dwindled due to the destruction of the prairies and their predators. These predators include badgers, coyotes, foxes, weasels, snakes and hawks.
