Hoary marmot photo
Saw these cute little guys up in Granite Basin alpine meadow. They are "marmota caligata". They have a high-pitched whistle they use to warn the members of the colony of approaching danger, although these guys were pretty friendly - I was able to get about 10 feet away from them.
Check out the mouthfull on the second one, I guess he was building a nest. Filed in: mammals
