Curiosity gets the best of this adult yellow-bellied marmot, looking out from talus rocks above timberline. Sometimes called 'whistle pig' for their high-pitched warning call, marmots are common in high mountain rocky slopes. They eat green vegetation and hibernate through the winter months. This image shows the long digging claws that enable marmots to tunnel under rock piles.

I turned my back and the curious mamrmot was chewing on my Lowepro pack straps to supplement his diet with salt:)
