These little creatures that look like small prairie dogs are very common to the Sonoran Desert. Their diet is primarily vegetation—cactus, mesquite pods, seeds, and insects. Coyotes are a common predator as well as snakes and hawks. During the winter months, these squirrels stay underground remaining in a torpor state til early February.
