Consider the Marmot

This one lives under some boulders in the park down the street.

What a lucky person you are. I've only seen one marmot in my life - long ago and high on Ebbetts Pass.

BTW,your blog looks great!

Marmota flaviventris - one of my favorite rodents... Their family structure is really cool, too.

Great Picture!!

Thanks! I actually took the picture a few years ago. There are at least two Marmot dens in the Wilbur D. May Arboretum that I know of.
