The damndest thing about gophers is how extremely cute they are. I'm
always happy to catch them because it means they will no longer be
eating our crops and making more gophers - but look at this little
guy. They have the funniest faces with their big cheek pockets
(sometimes incriminatingly crammed full of garlic stalks or lettuce
leaves) and teeny, tiny ears. And if you ever catch them in action,
you will laugh your ass off:
...that is, until you start seeing your whole garden toppling over.
