Look at this cutie! Not only is it absolutely precious, it has some unusual coloring. All of the other marmot pups I have seen were a red / brown color. This one, however, is more of gray / black dominant.
No matter the color, it was one of the most fun marmot pups I got to watch recently as it was quite curious about me. Initially it popped up over the rock as seen here but the, much to my surprise, hopped much closer. Only when I moved did it run back to a safer spot. I was glad cause I was beginning to get worried it was going to run up my pant leg. 😀
