Utah Prairie Dog
Utah Prairie Dog
The rare Utah prairie dog is not a dog, but a ground-dwelling rodent from the squirrel family. It is tawny to reddish-brown, with a short tail with a white tip and black "eyebrows" above their eyes, which distinguishes them from others of the prairie dog species. They occur only in Utah, having the smallest range of any prairie dog species.
