Black tailed prairie dogs are common in the state of Oklahoma and have an intricate way of communicating through chatter, squeaks, and yips.  A jump-yip is a unique phenomenon found in prairie dogs.  A prairie dog will stand and raise its arms above its head, jump, yip, and then fall over on its backside.  A jump-yip travels through a colony of prairie dogs much like a yawn is contagious amongst a group of people.  The purpose for this act is still in debate.
