Prairie Dogs You can easily watch Prairie Dogs throughout Albuquerque - especially along Tramway.These charismatic, rabbit-size rodents live in underground burrows, extensive warrens of tunnels and chambers marked by many mounds of packed earth at their surface entrances. Other animals benefit from their labors. Burrows may be shared by snakes, burrowing owls, and even rare black-footed ferrets, which hunt prairie dogs in their own dwellings.
