[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Prairie dogs are named for their habitat and warning call, which sounds similar to a dog's bark. According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the name is attested from at least 1774. The 1804 journals of the Lewis and Clark expedition note that in September of 1804, they "discovered a Village of an animal the french Call the Prarie Dog"

Its genus, Cynomys, derives from the Greek for "mouse dog."

Photo taken in "Blijdorp" Rotterdam.
