Prairie Dog Language

According to Professor Con Slobodchikoff of the Northern Arizona University, prairie dogs have one of the most sophisticated of animal languages. This is an interesting fact, but many ranchers think prairie dogs are dumb. It is obvious that the ranchers are wrong, because who would take the word of a rancher over that of a professor?

According to the professor, prairie dogs have more than 50 distinguishable sounds, which are considered to be linguistic. More details on Professor Slobodchikoff's work will be added later.
