Ready for yet another cute animal video, Green Monsters? Well, of course we are, I hear you say!

The Humane Society of the United States have just released an ADORABLE new clip called “Cute & Playful Prairie Dogs,” in which these wonderful creatures can be seen scurrying around their lands, foraging for food, and saying hello to the camera!

Sadly, the HSUS states that “the prairie dog population (of the Great Plains) has plummeted 95 percent from decades of persecution.” These gorgeous squirrel-like animals are under threat because of habitat loss and hunting, amongst other things. Luckily, though, you can help protect them by donating to support the HSUS “Prairie Dog Coalition” program here.

In the meantime, check out these little cuties. Things really reach a whole new level of cuteness when they start falling asleep and tipping over. You just have to watch the video!
