The Endangered Species Act

 

   


Gunnison's prairie dogs occur in high desert and montane grasslands, and tolerate some level of shrubs, such as rabbitbrush, sagebrush, and saltbrush. Habitat types occupied by GPDs include montane meadows, hillsides, broad alluvial valleys, floodplains, and playas. This species occupies habitats ranging from 6,000-10,000 feet in altitude, although they have been recorded at altitudes as high as 12,000 feet.
