Caption

Cape ground squirrel, Xerus inauris, with a tsamma melon. This rodent lives in arid open areas where it digs an extensive burrow system. It feeds on grass, roots, seeds, bulbs and termites, holding its bushy tail over its head as a sunshade. Cape ground squirrels live in colonies of 5-30 individuals and often share their burrows with other animals. Photographed in the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, South Africa.
