Watch the prairie dogs at the Detroit Zoo


Prairie dogs spend much of their time building and maintaining their underground town, consisting of multiple entrances and exits. Other times they forage for food, cuddle with each other or “kiss” members within their family. Working as a team, these furry diggers communicate through vocalizations — a high shriek will alert fellow prairie dogs if perceived trouble is afoot while a calm call relays that all is well.
