Prairie Pups

Prairie Pups
Two very young Prairie Dog pups. The one on the right seems a little nervous about this wide world.

Prairie dogs are burrowing rodents native to the grasslands of North America. They are a type of ground squirrel, found in the United States, Canada and Mexico. In the US, they range primarily to the west of the Mississippi River, though they have also been introduced in a few eastern locales. They are herbivorous.
On average, these stout-bodied rodents will grow to be between 30 and 40 cm (12 and 16 in) long, including the short tail, and weigh between 0.5 and 1.5 kilograms (1 and 3 lb). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prairie_dog

Malik thanks!! Indeed those Prairie Dogs are always alert, any movement they see causes them to dive into their burrows.

These lovely little critters remind me of Meercats the way they're standing with an alert look on their faces.
A nice piece of info' too, sometimes it's an education on 'ipernity'! :)
Great shot, Michael; best wishes, ~ David.

Perpension has replied to David Morgan
David, many thanks! They do quite resemble the Meercats, I agree. Strange that they should appear so similar and yet be of different families. Meerkats in the Mongoose family and Prairie Dogs in the Squirrel family. For me also, ipernity widens my horizons every day! Best regards, Michael
