Does anyone have any idea what animal would make a hole like this? We currently have 5-10 in the front yard and new ones are appearing every day. In the backyard there's another 5-10. They seem to be fairly clustered together.

Strangely, some are close to the concrete pathway to the house in the front yard and in the backyard there's a couple close to the the concrete slab foundation for the lanai.

They don't seem to be very deep, maybe 12-18 inches at most and widest would be 6 inches across.

I've seen possums around but not digging, so I'm wondering what else we might be sharing land with.

We're in the suburbs of Sarasota, if that helps.

Thanks for any ideas!

RE: Holes!

Since you've seen possums, then I'm going to guess, Possums! Could also be skunks. Have you seen skunks? Or raccoons. They are digging for grubs.
