Prairie Dog Licks Itself at National Zoo

I revisited the prairie dogs when I returned to the zoo last weekend, and in the interim, I guess they learned a neat trick from Steve Bannon. That's all I have to say about that.

(Accordion to the world's most reliable source of information, Wikipedia, "Behaviors that signal that a female is in estrus include underground consorting, self-licking of genitals, dust-bathing, and late entrances into the burrow at night. The licking of genitals may protect against sexually transmitted diseases and genital infections, while dust-bathing may protect against fleas and other parasites.")
