The black-tailed prairie dog is a rodent of the family sciuridae found in the Great Plains of North America from about the USA-Canada border to the USA-Mexico border. They were the most common prairie dog species collected in the wild for sale as exotic pets, until this trade was banned in 2003 by the United States federal government.

  • How come you haven’t seen one Tom, these animals only can be found in North America from about the USA-Canada border to the USA-Mexico border?
