A young Cape ground squirrel (Xerus inauris) nibbling on the walls of one of the den's openings in the Auob riverbed. These rodents live in open arid areas of southern Africa. They are social animals living in colonies numbering between 5 and 30 individuals, often sharing their burrows with Suricates or Yellow mongeese. The colonies dig extensive burrow systems. They feed on grasses, roots, seeds and insects. Filmed in summer within the South African section of the Kgalagadi transfrontier park in Southern Africa.
