Hoary Marmot

Marmota caligata

Description:

Silver-gray fur with black legs and black and white face. Something I had never seen before, was a pleasant surprise!

Habitat:

This guy was just sitting on the side of the road eating as I drove past. I backed up and got photos of it, thankfully it just sat there for me! It was raining and this guy seemed to be in no hurry. Coniferous forest near the bay.
