Do prairie dogs dig underground tunnels?

    Yes they dig a substantial web of tunnels underground. Often building individual rooms to suit specific purposes. In deep soil, the burrows may extend downward for ten or more feet, averaging 24 feet of tunnel per entrance. “Prairie dog tunnel systems help channel rainwater into the water table to prevent runoff and erosion. Tunnels can descend vertically as much as 5 meters (16 ft), and can extend laterally as much as 30 meters (98 ft).”
