Mounds of dirt "on the rocks"

Asked October 22, 2018, 10:55 PM EDT

I have quite a few mounds of dirt piled on top on my rock yard. The majority of mounds are situated around my single large tree and also my large agave plant. There are also several holes, approximately 3-4 inches diameter, none of which are located by the tree or plant mounds. The mounds are about 4-5 inches tall and about 6-8 inches round. Do you have any idea what is causing this problem? I am afraid something is going to jump out of the hole and bite me. Help!!!
