There are fewer animals who will win your heart as quickly as a prairie dog. Join Dr. Theodore G. Manno of Auburn University as he discusses the personalities of these endearing critters. Theo has dedicated himself to the study of the Utah prairie dog at Bryce Canyon National Park. During this talk, he’ll tell the story of his trials, tribulations, and triumphs as he got to know a group of very social–very unique–prairie dogs.
Recounting their various “personalities,” he will share what he has learned about the social interactions, mating behaviors, and natural history of Utah prairie dogs. Dr. Manno has taught in Pima Community College’s Biology Department and is President of the Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science. His research has been featured in media outlets like Discovery News and New Scientist, and his book The Utah Prairie Dog: Life Among the Red Rocks from University of Utah Press will be available at the talk. Don’t miss this opportunity for new insights into this most delightful of creatures.
