HOME (NOT) ON THE PRAIRIE

A family of prairie dogs absorb the warm morning sun Thursday atop their home dug into the hillside land behind the Sky-Hi News office. These charismatic, rabbit-size rodents live on North America's prairies and open grasslands in only a fraction of their former numbers. Family groups — a male, a few females, and their young — inhabit burrows and cooperate to share food, chase off other prairie dogs and groom one another. These group members even greet one another with a prairie dog kiss or nuzzle. Young pups are very playful and can often been seen romping near their burrows.
