Prairie Dog Facts[]

  • Prairie dogs can dig. They cannot fly due to gravity and their lack of wings.
  • Prairie dogs live on the Prairie, not in the ocean. They also live in holes, not in trees.
  • Prairie dogs eat grass, not rocks.

Animal Puzzle with Questions[]

  • Do prairie dogs dig or fly?
  • Do prairie dogs live in the ocean or on the prairie?
  • Do they live in a hole or in a tree?
  • Do prairie dogs like to eat rocks or grass?

  • Diego and Alicia were supposed to sing "Una Adventura" because it was an adventure.
    • However, they sung Al Rescate due to saving the prairie dog family from the heat of the desert and moving them to the new prairie.
  • Alicia was most heard in the "Al Rescate" Song, Diego was dubbed just like in "Diego and Alicia Save the Otters"
  • During the first time Diego and Alicia count the prairie dogs, Diego said, "Repeat after us!" instead of "Count with us!".
    • However, this could actually make sense because as they count, the pauses were long enough for the viewer to repeat.
