Looks like a Richardson Ground Squirrel, AKA gopher.

I believe that is a Prairie Dog.

Richardson Ground Squirrel (external link) does not equal "Gopher (external link)" does not equal "Prairie Dog" (external link) :-)

By the way, that's a Prairie Dog.

I'm surprised that's in a Zoo. They're huge pests in Western Canada; my elementary schoolyard used to be covered in the holes created by their colonies until the city poisoned 'em all in between grades five and six
