2012 Babies!

At the beginning of May the 2012 babies emerged. York is the proud (and exhausted) papa of 25 babies in 4 litters.

A video of them is up at Youtube.

Happy Prairie Dog Day!

In the west since we have no groundhogs, there's a growing trend of celebrating Prairie Dog Day on February 2nd.

My alpha male, York, didn't see his shadow here. Looks like the warm weather will continue!

I also have prairie dog and associated wildlife videos up on youtube.
