Closely related to the squirrel, is the Prairie Dog. This is the Black-tailed Prairie Dog ( Cynomys ludovicianus). There name come from the Barking sound they Make. Taken at the Memphis Zoo on 7-29-11.
These guys are soooo cute!
I love how all most all of the pictures seem to capture the animals personalities
That is the kindest complement anyone has ever paid me. I do try my hardest, to use my camera, to capture the personality of each animal. I think your the first person to understand that about my photos. ^_^
