Caption

Cape ground squirrel (Xerus inauris) feeding on a watermelon. This rodent is found in southern Africa, living in extensive burrow systems in arid areas. It eats grass, roots, seeds, fruit, bulbs and termites, holding its bushy tail over its head as a sunshade. The Cape ground squirrel lives in colonies of 5 to 30 and often shares its burrow with other animals. Photographed in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa.
