Prairie Dog Language

Black-tailed prairie dogs, like the one seen here, have at least 12 words in their community language. One word is a specific to “snake.” In this short video, see the town army suss out a viper, get the pups underground, and send a team of adults to inspect the intruder.

You can always see the prairie dogs live on the bison cam!
