Roda’s Critter Connection: The Marmot

While visiting the Rocky Mountains, my family fell in love with this adorable critter, the yellow-bellied marmot.  Marmots are one of the largest members of the squirrel family, weighing up to 11 lbs and measure up to two feet in length.

Living in the tundra, in colonies of 10-20 , these omnivores dig burrows underneath meadows and in rocky fields. Due to the extreme conditions of the tundra, these critters spend half of their lives in hibernation.
