Pocket-Gopher





The pocket-gopher lives and burrows in the fields. It is a mole-like

animal but much larger than the common mole. Its legs are short and its

front feet strong, with long nails for digging. The fur is soft and

silky and dark brown in color. Where the gopher is there may be found

the weasel, his greatest enemy. It should be an even fight between them,

for they are equally matched in ill-temper and savageness, and are near

of a size though the gopher is the heavier.
