Additional Information

The black-tailed prairie dogs once lived in great numbers across most of West Texas and into the Edwards Plateau.

At the turn of the century one prairie dog town on the High Plains of Texas extended for one hundred miles in one direction and two hundred fifty miles in the other. It is estimated that the town contained four hundred million prairie dogs.

Prairie dogs are burrowing animals and the one foot to two feet high mounds mark the entrance hole for individual families or coteries.  The entrance may plunge 15 or 16 feet deep before branching off into many separate chambers.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.


This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
