Gopher teeth are constantly growing, hence their natural need to gnaw and chew in order to keep their teeth ground to a short enough length. These animals can be anywhere from five to 14 inches long, and their fur color ranges from black to brown to white.
There are thirteen species of gophers, all of which are found only in the Western Hemisphere of the earth. They prefer light-textured soils with high densities of vegetation, although they have been located in areas with rocky soil, as well. The smaller the gopher, the more likely it will be able to tolerate and adapt to different soils. Generally larger gophers have to be more picky.
