Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel

The farmer's worst enemy.... The thirteen-lined ground squirrel! The burrow in the ground and make tunnels through the grass. This gopher is notorious for making den holes in lawns and golf courses. These little critters are common across our area and are often seen in rural grassland areas.

Are these in Missouri? I grew up in Columbia but don't recall ever seeing one of those fellows.
Your photos are wonderful.
