12 Yr Old Austrian, Matteo Walch Makes Friends With Shy Marmots

16 comments:

  1. I had a lot of groundhogs (a lower-class version of marmots?) that were digging around my house's foundation. I had to make friends with them -- WITH A .22 .

    1. Is a marmot a fancy groundhog? We don't have them here...gulp

    2. P.S. Wikipedia says, "Marmots are large squirrels in the genus Marmota," so they're clearly crazy.

      They also list some marmot species: "marmots, Subgenus Marmota: Alpine marmot, Forest-steppe marmot, Gray marmot... Groundhog, woodchuck, or whistlepig..."
      Whistlepig? They're clearly crazy.

  2. Not sure but I think Marmots are just high altitude Prairie dogs...Groundhogs belong to the squirrel family... It looks like this young man is now a Disney Princess....

      Getting a young person off their ass and out from in front of the computer and video games, experiencing nature first hand and learning to respect and understand the symbiotic relationship all living things share. Great parenting,great parenting indeed.
