Prairie dog babies

Prairie dog baby

Spring has brought up our newest additions to the zoo—at least 15 new baby prairie dogs! They were being taken care of underground by Mom until they were about 40 days old and then they climb out of their holes to explore a new world.
Once you walk by the exhibit, it’s difficult to walk away! All the babies are playing and standing up just like the adults. They roll around with each other and let out squeaky barks to try to imitate their parents.
