Fort Worth Nature Center
It seems that I've developed a new routine going places every Monday. Well, today, I went to the Fort Worth Nature Center. It was the first time I've seen wild prairie dogs in their natural habitat. The pictures didn't come out as great as I hoped, because they were too far away. There are also fox squirrels at this nature center; as I've briefly seen one and heard another making an alarm call. Prairie dogs also have several alarm calls for different purposes, and though a close cousin, have a more complex system of communication than squirrels.
