Can’t get enough? Luckily, this tiny prairie dog star has both an Instagram and a where her owner, whose social media handle is Pimpa_wan, shares photos and videos of TonNam in various outfits, eating food, drinking water from a bottle, and just hanging out. The captions are in Thai, so she seems to be living it up in Thailand.

Watch the video to see why  prairie dogs so much and how many he takes out.

Senkiw captured video of the prairie dogs going about their daily foraging behavior. He recorded 173 total bouts of jump-yipping and their immediate aftermath.

We had no idea how much we loved prairie dogs until this video of one facing off with a mysterious intruder (a GoPro camera atop its mound) showed up. The animals are notoriously curious and YouTuber wanted to find out what would happen if he put the tiny camera near one of the many prairie dog burrows in North Dakota's ... mrzha05, we tip our hats to you.

The prairie dog is a small rodent native to the grasslands of the United States, Canada and Mexico. The are a type of ground squirrel that lives in large colonies. These prairie dog "towns" can span hundreds of acres of burrows and tunnels dug in the ground. Play the following videos to learn more about the prairie dog.Hare and colleagues recorded video of 14 prairie dog towns in , , and Manitoba between 2003 and 2004 and closely observed footage of the animals’ behavior.
First, we did some research and found out that some of the prairie dogs' natural predators are badgers, coyotes and hawks. We decided to place these predators near the prairie dogs and record their barks with a video camera. We placed both a stuffed badger and coyote near them. Then we played a hawk call CD for the little guys. Last, Sabrina dressed like a giant butterfly to see what type of call they'd make with a creature they had never seen before. Biologists have recently begun to understand how prairie dog colonies benefit their native habitat. This video from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department describes the prairie dog and its grassland ecosystem, explains its role in creating species diversity, and considers how we can apply this knowledge in protecting the colonies that remain.Prairie dogs are “ecosystem engineers” that are hard at work modifying, building and feeding the larger grassland ecosystem. Because of their activity, many other animals also benefit from the small rodent. Prairie dogs construct burrows needed by snakes and birds, are tasty meals for predators, and even help “mow the lawn,” which encourages new growth and plant diversity. Bison love to snack here! Learn more about prairie dogs and why American Prairie Reserve is working to bring them back in this video with biologists Damien Austin and Kyran Kunkel.The team video recorded 173 jump-yip bouts within 16 black-tailed prairie dog towns - very large colonies - spread across four naturally occurring populations in South and North Dakota and two introduced populations in Winnipeg, Canada. They found that the more individuals that participated in a jump-yip bout, and the longer a jump-yip bout lasted, the more time the instigator would allocate to foraging. This finding ties in with one of the hypotheses mentioned above that suggested the jump-yips served as a way to collect up-to-date information from colony mates on their current level of watchfulness.
