Information about the Black-Tailed Prairie Dog:
The Blacktailed Prairie dog is a member of the family Sciuridae. These small mammals are native to the Great Plains of North America stretching from southern Canada down into northern Mexico. An adult usually weighs about 1.5 to 3 pounds (0.68 to 1.4 kg) with a body length of roughly 14 to 17 inches (36 to 43 centimeters), with a 3 to 4 inch tail (7.6 to 10 centimeters.) Males tend to be larger and heavier than the females. They are very social animals, living in multi-family burrows with a hierarchy and relatively complex social order. Some of these colonies are massive, with one as large as 4,000,000 individuals covering 25,000 square miles described in Texas. At one time, the species was considered endangered due to environmental pressures and disease, but thanks to conservation effort these rodents have rebounded and are no longer considered at risk.
