Which rodent made this new mound in a So. CA area?

http://imgur.com/a/KNFno
Was this big new mound made by a gopher, mole, etc. outside a rural So(uthern) CA(lifornia) home? It appears yesterday's morning and got bigger this morning. :(
Thank you in advance. :)

Could also easily be a mole or vole.. that picture shows very little for determining what it is that's digging.

As is Ant, I too am in southern California. I have had gophers in my garden. Not far from my house, ground squirrel undermined a significant slope, endangering homes both at the top and bottom; a significant sum was spent to repair the slope in a way that ground squirrels would no longer be a problem. I have not heard of moles or voles causing problems in this area.

I have no way to judge the scale. How big is the hole? Around here (Tennessee) I would be inclined to say 'chipmunk' if the hole was the sort of size that a ping-pong ball might plug it.

I'd get a game camera or one that is triggered by motion and set it up to see what comes to or from the hole.
It might have been a xxx but now it can be a snake that went in to eat the xxx.

So far, nothing since then. Maybe it ran away from the inserted poisons and disturbances? Last week, there were holes on the gravel walkway. :/

I have seen gopher snakes like this one from a couple years ago:

"Ant" reminds me of "The Naked Jungle"... and Eleanore Parker heats things up, literally and figuratively:
