Curious gopher lives under rocket launchpad

As prime locations go, it is not ideal - unless you like rockets - however one curious gopher has been found living metres from the launchpad at Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome.

The creature was filmed completely by chance after a space agency cameraman accidentally left his camera rolling on the ground at the base. The gopher seemed quite happy with his home, despite it being perilously close to the pad where astronauts blast off for the International Space Station.
