Rattlesnake v Prairie Dog "Badlands"


—  wildlife Sequences —


Behavior: Prairie dog fends off a rattlesnake

For: Smithsonian Channel/Terra Mater/Mike Birkhead Associates - “Badlands: Hard Rock, Tough Lives”

Info: It would seem rattlesnakes would have an easy time snacking on prairie dogs, but the these little prairie squirrels have a trick or two up their sleeve! Filmed just outside Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
