Is it Friday yet?! Not quite. Much to the surprise of this White Tailed Prairie Dog, it's #TaxaThursday! This species (Cynomys leucurus), along with the other 4 prairie dogs species, are part of the greater squirrel family, and can only be found in North America. White-tailed prairie dog colonies can be found out west in #Wyoming, #Utah, #Colorado, and #Montana. This little one was spotted at Seedskadee National #WildlifeRefuge in Wyoming. πŸ“· Tom Koerner / @USFWS #Taxa #🐿️ #WY #CO #MT #UT #WildlifeRefuge #prairiedog #wildlife #cynomysleucurus #cynomys
