Cynomys ludovicianus – black-tailed prairie dog. The one on the left is a juvenile.


They ought to get a room.

The first time we visited Denver I was so enchanted with a prarie dog “town” that I made a YouTube video of some still shots of the little varmints.

For some reason this may be the most hated critter inhabiting the Texas Panhandle - which is saying a lot considering we have coyotes & rattlesnakes. It’s a shame considering the role prairie dogs play in th ecosystem. I hope (and expect) that in the not too distant future they will receive ESA protection.

For some reason, it looks creepy.
