Description"As is the case with a number of pocket gopher species, most aspects of the Western Pocket Gopher's life have not yet been studied. This Pocket Gopher lives in rich volcanic soils of alpine meadows and small glacial prairies, west of the Cascade Mountains in northern California, Oregon, and Washington. When Western Pocket Gophers are caught, they are always alone in their burrows."
