This Black-tailed Prairie Dog in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota is munching on a plant that must be quite tasty.  Although the prairie dog towns don’t have lots of vegetation around their holes which are surrounded by mounds of dirt, some hardy species thrive.  This must be one of them but I couldn’t find a name for it.  Apparently only certain kinds of plants can survive the constant munching by the Prairie Dogs, especially during the summer and fall when eating by these pudgy rodents becomes an almost perpetual activity.
