Camera Critters - Prarie Dogs
a prarie dog munching on a piece of carrot. The pictures were taken at the Hamburg zoo, Hagenbecks Tierpark, where a group of about 20 prarie dogs live in an enclosure right next to the bison.
Animals with the same habitat are grouped together and in many cases you can see a panorama of different species without really noticing the barriers between their enclosures:
here's an unusual guest:
The peacocks roam the park freely and often choose the enclosures of other animals to present themselves. He didn't show his tail, though. Maybe that's why the prarie dogs were absolutely ot impressed and ignored him.
