Devils Tower National Monument, Wyoming: Prairie Dog Town
The prairie dog is one of nature's clowns. The residents at Devils Tower live in a meadow in the park area below the Tower, with dozens of their holes connecting below the surface. Quite frequently, the dogs take a good look around their residence.
When visiting, don't try to feed them (they could die eating human food) or even approach them (they bite!). Just enjoy the show, as they hop around the grounds and then scurry back into holes every so often.
