Description

The Black-Tailed Prairie Dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) is a rodent that lives grassland habitats of the Great Plains of North America. Habitat preferences are influenced by the type of vegetative covering, soil, slope, and rainfall, which aid in their foraging and burrowing activities.

They are different than other prairie dogs, as the Black-Tailed Prairie Dog does not hibernate, and they can be seen above ground in the middle of winter. The species in compactly built with small ears that are close to the head. They are a tan color with a lighter-colored belly, and the name, Black-Tailed Prairie Dog, references the tail which has a black tip.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
