prairie dogs live in underground burrows with at least 2 entrances. they ventilate their burrows by building a mound around one entrace, which is open to a stream of air. a second entrace at ground level is open to almost stagnant air. use bernoullis principle to explain how this construction creates air flow through the burrow
