Black-tailed Prairie Dog (Cynomys ludovicianus)

Prairie Dogs are masters of earthwork. They live underground in extensive tunnel systems and have a strong connection to family. Communication is key in Prairie Dog towns as predators are always on the prowl. For that reason a watch dog is always on the lookout and ready to alert the whole village if a threat is near. Eats grasses and vegetation.
