Cape Ground Squirrel (Xerus inauris)

Artist's Description

Click on the image to view larger

The name Cape Ground Squirrel is somewhat misleading as it actually has a much wider area of habitation, it is found in most of the drier parts of southern Africa from South Africa, through to Botswana, and into Namibia. Colonies of up to 30, led by a dominant female, live in burrows which sometimes shares with suricates and mongooses. Like suricates, they stand upright to spot danger, before dashing for cover.
