Yes, they are adorable, yes they waddle, yes they are curious and no they are not afraid of you. Playful prairie dogs and jackrabbits all hanging out, checking you out checking them out. It's a recipe for a fun afternoon. Don't miss it!

This is the best. A cool, forward thinking attraction lo those many years ago, and it's a lot of fun to just sit and watch. The educational component is good as well, and all in all, it's a fun stop when you're in Lubbock.

It is a small area where you can view the Prairie Dogs and if you are lucky some owls. I love to listen to the sound they make when people come around. They are very cute but don't try to catch or pet them. Worth...More
