Marmota flaviventris


Marmots typically live in burrows (often within rockpiles, particularly in the case of the yellow-bellied marmot), and hibernate there through the winter. Most marmots are highly social and use loud whistles to communicate with one another, especially when alarmed. Marmots mainly eat greens and many types of grasses, berries, lichens, mosses, roots and flowers.

This is not my pic. I posted this with permission from the photographer/copyright holder. Before she left for a trip to Colorado Springs, she asked to borrow my camera, specifically taking these Rocky Mountain pics for this mission and Bioblitz for Project Noah.
