This Summer Vacation, Visit the Prairie Dog Town

On the Bison Cam, the prairie dogs are busy reconnecting in their towns (groups of prairie dogs are called towns) and sprucing up their intricate lodgings. “Burrows have defined nurseries, sleeping quarters, and even toilets. They also feature listening posts near exits, so animals can safely keep tabs on the movements of predators outside,” (NatGeo).

Did You Know? The endangered Burrowing Owl will use abandoned Prairie Dog burrows for a nest.

Tune in today and see the goings on at the prairie dog town!
