Friendly Little Yellowstone Critters

Our cabin in Yellowstone was surrounded by many of these little creatures, which I think are prairie dogs. They were obviously used to being fed by people because they'd come right up to us, even though we didn't give them anything. They were certainly cute!
Visit the Camera Critters meme to see more creatures from around the world.


  1. They are cute critters. I love Yellowstone, we stayed in the cabins near Old Faithful. It was great being so close.

  2. So cute! Looks like his begging for some goodies!

  3. Oh oh, he's waiting for his treat!

    Snakes, have a good Saturday!

  4. I really must get to Yellowstone some day.
    These cute little guys look a lot like the gophers we have here in Alberta. Ours are officially "Richardson's Ground Squirrel" but we call them gophers.
    Unfortunately, our dog calls them lunch, so it's hard to walk her during gopher season.
    Good shots you got of them.

  6. So cute!! How could you even stand still to take the pic? I would have been too busy going "Awwwwwwwwww" lol.

    One of my cats likes to stand like this to look out the window. It's cool but no where near as cute! :)

  7. Such cute little buggers! And he looks as though he's posing just for you!! Love your photos as always! Have a lovely weekend, Al.
