Botta’s pocket gopher Rodent lives mainly alone. It digs an extensive burrow system (lodge) in loose soil, using its strong forelegs equipped with large claws. This gopher stays underground most of its life, consuming roots, tubers, bulbs, and other subsurface plant parts. It is greyish brown above and browny orange below, and has adaptations typical of burrowers, such as a flat head, long whiskers, small eyes, and small ears closed by flaps.
