Houston Zoo Has New Babies!!!

prairie-dog-pups.jpgThey’re cute, adorable, furry and oh so quick.  They’re the newest arrivals at the Houston Zoo – three black-tailed prairie dogs born approximately six weeks ago at the Zoo’s McGovern Children’s Zoo and just now emerging from their burrow.  They’ve been scampering around the Children’s Zoo’s prairie dog exhibit for a few days now and will stay fairly close to their mother for several more weeks.  The best time to see the pups is late morning or mid to late afternoon. So make sure you take your babies over to the zoo this weekend and greet the newest addition!
