Prairie Dog Town
Mammals Grades 7-8 Extension
Surprisingly enough, comparatively little has been written about that most social and comical of our native animals, the prairie dog. A prairie dog town is laid out skillfully and carefully, with an eye to safety and comfort. Mostly underground, its tunnels and rooms are amazing to explore. In this engaging book by Margaret T. Raymond and Carl O. Mohr we have a chance to see prairie dogs going about their business with their curious neighbors, including jackrabbits, owls, ferrets, and antelope.
