Contrary to what their name might suggest, they are rodent, for intents and purposes.
Knowing rather few things about these small puppies, I had a look on the web and I discovered that my initial thoughts were right.
The first time I saw the prairie dogs I have been very surprised.
I immediately noticed their playful nature, their tendency to live in big colonies and their sociability.
The first picture of them was a storm of playing puppies, some jumped on the back of others, some bit to catch the attention and some were chasing their unlucky friends.
On the opposite side, a couple of pups were digging, camouflaging themselves with the ground.
Others were having a snack eating some grass, their happy expression and their inflated belly made them looking so funny.
I thought that the Suricates were the funniest puppies but suddenly I met these one.. and once again my view changed.
Ode to mother nature in all its shapes and brightness.
