dc.description.abstract Miniature temperature-sensitive data loggers were implanted into the abdominal cavities of 16 free-ranging Cape ground squirrels, Xerus inauris, to investigate seasonal body temperature patterns. Data loggers recorded body temperature at 5-min intervals while microclimate variables were recorded in situ at 15 minute intervals. The behaviour of the study animals was recorded using 5-min scan samples throughout the day. These data were collected for eight Cape ground squirrels for 27 and 28 days during the austral winter and summer respectively. en_ZA
