What do prairie dogs eat?
Prairie dogs feed on leaves, grasses and grass roots, weeds,
seeds and other plants (including crops like alfalfa and corn).
They also eat grasshoppers, cutworms, bug and beetles.
The prairie dog lives in the grassland biome in North
American prairie and grassland where there are three distinct areas
of prairie - Tallgrass prairie, Mixed-grass prairie and Shortgrass
prairie. In the United States, the greatest stretch of
grassland is the prairie, extending from the Appalachians in the
East to the Rocky Mountains in the West. Being in the center of the
North American land mass, far from the moderating influence of
major bodies of water, there is a great range of annual
temperature.The dominant vegetation in these biotic communities is
blue grama, mixed with galleta grass, Indian rice grass, and other
Prairedogs eat vegetables Such as raw sweet potatoes,
brocolley,carrots,ferrot pellets and Timothy hay. Never give them
anything with alfalfa in it it could kill the little fellers and we
dont want that. Just be sure they can get a lot of excersize to run
all that food off.
