Researchers say US prairie dogs exhibit natural language ability as complex as their social society housed in a highly engineered and complex burrow system

 "Prairie dogs have the most complex natural language that has been decoded so far. They have words for different predators, they have descriptive words for describing the individual features of different predators, so it's a pretty complex language that has a lot of elements," says Prof Slobodchikoff.
