If you were ever wondering what people were doing before GoPro cameras, we know one thing for sure – they had less cute videos of curious gophers. Here we can see an extremely inquisitive gopher that poses for the camera and then investigates it so closely that he bumps his nose on the lens. He sniffs at the camera and checks it out, resulting in a very close look at his adorable face.

These cute creatures are vast in numbers and there are over 100 types of this rodent just in the United States. They are vegetarians, so they don't eat human cameras, but instead indulge on roots, shrubs, trees, plants and even grass.

They are also known for building complex underground tunnels, and occasionally they want to pop their heads out and check out the surroundings. They are loners, and only one gopher can be found in a tunnel system.

This curious fella has a knack for being on camera, and gives us a rare glimpse of his cute face while he is sniffing the GoPro camera. Is this the next big Internet celebrity? Well he's much cuter than the human ones, that's for sure. Share this with your friends and brighten their day!
