Artist's notes:

The Black-Tailed Prairie Dog was completed on 12.10.09. These little rodents have so much character in their faces. Watching them endlessly (and nervously) fuss around their warrens is fascinating, when I get to see them in the zoos. The drawing is based on a photo by A.J. Haverkamp of the Netherlands.

Information about the Black-Tailed Prairie Dog:

The Blacktailed Prairie dog is a member of the family Sciuridae. These small mammals are native to the Great Plains of North America stretching from southern Canada down into northern Mexico. An adult usually weighs about 1.5 to 3 pounds (0.68 to 1.4 kg) with a body length of roughly 14 to 17 inches (36 to 43 centimeters), with a 3 to 4 inch tail (7.6 to 10 centimeters.) Males tend to be larger and heavier than the females. They are very social animals, living in multi-family burrows with a hierarchy and relatively complex social order. Some of these colonies are massive, with one as large as 4,000,000 individuals covering 25,000 square miles described in Texas. At one time, the species was considered endangered due to environmental pressures and disease, but thanks to conservation effort these rodents have rebounded and are no longer considered at risk.
