My size elevens are just for reference. Weeks ago at the time of the great Bear vs. the armadillo gang post, this was a small gopher (that's Gopherus polyphemus) burrow. Since that time, something has remodeled it and turned a tiny bungalow into a spreading mcmansionburrow.
There is a slide track which indicates the resident gopher is still using it, but the burrow itself has been majorly enlarged.
I leaned down into it to get the interior view below.
I'm thinking (hoping) that maybe a fox has moved in.
Obviously, this is a place I should stake out ... I always enjoyed winter stakeouts at the top of Newfound Gap in my NPS days.
It'll be like old times ... only without the car clouting crooks.
(Yes, it would be a good job for the game camera, but seriously ... except for Rurality's shots, aren't game camera photos kinda dry?)
I'll keep you posted.
...posted ... heehee.
