New Mexico Marmot

New Mexico Marmot

My wife and I spotted this New Mexico Marmot while on a high altitude wilderness hike.  New Mexico Marmots are ground-dwelling rodents of the squirrel family.  In North America they are called groundhogs or woodchucks.  New Mexico Marmot use lookouts to watch for predators. When a predator is spotted, the lookout whistles loudly. Marmots are excellent diggers, and construct an elaborate system of burrows, each with both a main entrance and an escape tunnel. Their burrows are used as dens by other animals, including skunks and foxes. During the summer, Marmots gain weight in order to prepare for hibernation. New Mexico Marmot usually hibernate all winter and may lose as much as half their body weight by February.  

Happy Groundhog  Marmot Day

You say they are lookouts, and this marmot certainly looks very alert. He also looks sleek and well fed. Great shot!

Great shot. My dad, growing up in Colorado, learned to call these "Whistle Pigs", so that's the name I think of first. I love this guy's expression.

Nice pic John, this is my first New Mexico Marmot. I don't know how big that rock is but he/she looks to be pretty good size and also appears to be posing for his/her picture :-)
