Prairie dog

Prairie dog language is complex. They don’t just have a call for “danger”: their calls differentiate human, hawk, a domesticated dog, coyote, etc. and specify size and color. One study found that they can communicate “Here comes the short human in the yellow” (vs the tall human in blue) to each other.
