Using Your Head Black-tailed Prairie Dog – Using Your Head

Using Your Head

     This Black-tailed Prairie Dog was in the process of playing architect and to accomplish the task, the phrase ” using your head ” became quite appropriate.  A powerful storm had just passed over and the soaker had drenched the earth.  The prairie dog took this opportunity to move the moistened, loosened soil to build up the mound around its burrow.  Of course this was facilitated by pushing the dirt into position and then tamping it with its nose and forehead.  So … using your head to do the job, in this case, was literally accurate.
