Prairie Dog Wallpaper Images
Prairie dogs are integral to the health of prairie ecosystems, and are especially important to the endangered black-footed ferret. When prairie dogs abandon a burrow, the tunnel can provide shelter for other animals. Prairie dogs can keep their area groomed free of tall grasses, too.
Beyond being "keystone species," prairie dogs are pretty darn cute as well. Download a free image to use as wallpaper on your computer or iPhone.
