Richardson Ground Squirrel

The Richardson Ground Squirrel, also known as the Wyoming Ground Squirrel, is sometimes called a gopher or a prairie gopher because of its strong resemblance to the gopher family. It is also called a flickertail because it flicks its tail when giving a shrill whistle.
Identified by its dark brown and tan body, short tail and small ears, the Richardson Ground Squirrel is similar in appearance to its cousin the prairie dog. They prefer open terrain to dig their burrows in order to keep an eye out for predators. Usually found standing outside their burrows, they hide behind mounds of dirt, sticks and leaves outside the entrance.
Adult Richardson Ground Squirrels hibernate in July followed by their young in September. Hibernation usually lasts until March. After hibernation, males leave the burrows first to establish territories followed by females a few weeks later. Shortly thereafter, females give birth to 8 babies, usually once a year in April or May. 
Considered agricultural pests because of their fondness to eat crops, the Richardson Ground Squirrel prefers seeds, nuts, grains, grasses and insects. Their predators are hawks, weasels, badgers and coyotes.
Richardson Ground Squirrels stay in grouped colonies and alert each other with different calls when danger is near. They have been known to emit ultrasound tones with a frequency too high for people to hear.
