About Prairie Dogs
Prairie dogs are highly social rodents that live in
communal burrows that can cover up to 160 acres. Prairie
dogs are social animals, and often make social visits
with each other, and greet each other with a sort of
kiss. There are five different subspecies of prairie
dogs: black-tailed prairie dogs, white-tailed prairie
dogs, Gunnisonís prairie dogs, Utah prairie dogs, and
Mexican prairie dogs. They are usually just over a foot
long, and weigh up to 3 pounds. They are generally found
in North America, and northern parts of Central America.
They eat all sorts of vegetables and fruits.
