They use the burrows of other animals out west, but here in Florida they do the excavating themselves. They are a "Species of Special Concern" here which is the scientific equivalent of a "whatever". But here in Cape Coral, the community embraces them. They truly adore them and sometimes they run them over with their cars. It happens. One nest I checked on was caved in with tire marks directly over the top of it.
