or ciao a tutti! That's pretty much all the italian I speak, but I have developed a really keen interest in prairie dogs, and thus found your site surfing some american sites. I live in Finland, and as it is a small country, it is nearly impossible to find anyone who even knows what these adorable little creatures are, let alone owns one .
Currently you cannot buy a prairie dog in Finland, due to some restrictions on importing live animals from the U.S., and the PD population in Finland consists of such a few animals that they can't be breeded in captivity. Still my house is all but pet free, I live with two cats, Essi and Mike, two corn snakes and an aquarium. My nearly four years old pet rat passed away this week ::'(:.
So, as I noticed there is a whole lot of you enjoying the company of your own PD/PDs, I wish there is someone amongst you, who would like to help me a little with my poor italian and answer some questions about the species in english.
Your arctic frend
