Townsend Ground Squirrel

Ground Squirrels   Pests and Animals   Squirrel Trap   Townsend Ground Squirrel   Wildlife 

The Townsend Ground Squirrel is a small smoky gray squirrel having a pinkish tint, white belly and short bi-colored tail. It has a reddish tint on its face, hind legs and under its tail. Known for climbing onto nearby bushes, the Townsend Ground Squirrel eats the seeds of grasses and other plants as well as many types of crops.
Adult male Townsend Ground Squirrels emerge from hibernation in January followed by adult females in February. They breed in March and have a litter of 5-8 babies in April. Townsend Ground Squirrels will return to hibernation from May to July when grasses dry out.
Townsend Ground Squirrels dig two types of burrows, a short shallow emergency burrow in feeding areas to duck away from predators, and a large burrow with lots of tunnels connecting all colonies together. Entrances to large burrows have 4-6 inch piles of dirt surrounding them. Large burrows are created for colonies to stick together, although family and individuals sometimes live in separate burrows.
Found in well-drained soils, embankments, sagebrush, desert springs and irrigated fields, the Townsend Ground Squirrel are habitat to Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Oregon.
