These Black-Tailed Prairie Dogs are a hit at the Minnesota Zoo. Groups of families seem to spend extra time there and have a great time watching these busy little guys run around. The prairie dogs are a hit with photo seekers also. You could literally reach over the railing and pick them up if you wanted to. I don’t advise doing that due to zoo security and the fact that you would probably need some medical attention. I can’t say enough about this facility and it’s exhibits. Up close and personal should be their motto.
