Prairie Dog Playland

Prairie Dog Playland

November 19, 2005 – Permanent

Museum: National Zoo

Location: Near Prairie Dogs and Lemur Island

This prairie-dog-themed playground, designed for children ages 2-6, reveals a prairie-dog's perspective on survival. Children can crawl through a series of tubes that resemble prairie dogs' underground tunnels, can pop up "above ground," and can look through scopes to scan for large cutouts of such predators as black-footed ferrets and hawks.
