These rabbit-size rodents live in prairies and open grasslands and average in size from 12 to 15 inches(head and body) with a tail of 3-4 in. They weigh between 2-4 pounds.[img_assist|nid=142398|title=size|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=640|height=392]
The prairie dog is around football size (30 cm or 12 inches) and can live up to 5 years in the wild. Some species are endangered, specifically the Mexican prairie dog and Utah prairie dog. These became endangered because farmers used poison to kill them as they ate the same grass that cattle eat.
