Artist's Description

Location: Wyoming, USA
500mm Lens

A robust prairie dog, on sentinel duty, communicates with the colony using a full body, foot slapping, alarm call.

Black-tailed prairie dogs are dormant in winter, but does not truly hibernate, and can be seen above ground on warm winter days. Clips vegetation very short around colonies for an unobstructed view. Has the most complex social behavior of all prairie dogs. Prior to settlement of the west, very large colonies called “towns” were huge, with the largest estimated to contain 400 million individuals covering 65,000 sq km. Lives at high densities where not persecuted. Prefers shortgrass to mid-grass prairies.
