2019—The Wave

One of the many charming characteristics of Black-tailed Prairie Dogs is the way they communicate in their Prairie Dog Towns. One of the more fascinating aspects of their communication system is what is often compared to The Wave as seen in sports stadiums around the world. It is contagious in the town and as one jumps up and flings its head back, others around the town follow suit. This is one of the Black-tailed Prairie Dogs at the Grey Cliff Prairie Dog State Park in Montana at the apex of his wave.
