2 inch round holes in my yard every 2-3 feet

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I have 2 inch round holes about every 2-3 feet in my yard. They are linked because I ran a water hose into one and the others started filling up with water. What kind of animal would make these holes. There is not a mound of dirt around the holes, just round holes in my yard.

Most likely chipmunks or 13-lined ground squirrels (which many people call chipmunks) are digging those holes. Ground squirrel holes are about 3 inches in diameter, and chipmunk holes are about half that. If you live in the western Plains states or the Southwest and have sandy soil, it could be a kangaroo rat (don't panic, they're not RAT rats -- although rats also dig holes.) I've attached links to information about each.
