    Sweet. Now I can finally understand and talk to... prairie dogs.

    Super.

    I'm joking... I can see the ramifications of this to be big as science and discover rage on. Get this and imagine how many more animals they might be able to "decipher" in the future.

    Then we can finally learn how much the animal kingdom absolutely HATES us humans.

    I think we will begin to discover many animals are much more aware and intelligent than we've ever given them credit for being.
